Skatterbox was established back in 1988 by Stan Lynall and his
wife. Judy was in the fashion trade when she realised there was
a gap in the market for good quality hat box manufacturers offering hat boxes and garment boxes at a competitive price. Together with Stan's knowledge of the packaging industry and help
from the advertising with WWB, the regent striped hat box was born.
The company went from strength to strength moving from Walsall
to its present day site in Cannock, Staffordshire, UK.
In December 2003 Stan and Judy decided to retire and sold the
business to Derek and Gillian Green who have both been friends
with the family for many years.
Derek has had a long love affair with packaging and its design,
having travelled the world advising and designing high-class packaging
for some of the top jewellers in the UK, companies such as Dunhill, Aspray's, Garrard to name
just a few.
Derek admits this year has been a real learning curve coming in
to the ladies fashion industry but the comparables are the same.
The right hat box and packaging will make all the difference between just shopping
and a shopping experience that will help make the client come back
for more and more.
This year Derek has come up trumps again. He has improved the
quality of the packaging by upgrading materials but not the price
to the fashion house and with his latest design of hexagonal garment
boxes in 4 sizes and 6 new colours he reckons this will give the
discerning client that Beverley Hills shopping experience.
