We are a certified SafeContractor; What does that mean for you?

Behind the scenes our Kenray team have been working hard to refresh our SafeContractor Accreditation. Having this certification means we have met and surpassed the high standards needed in the following fields:

      • Health and Safety
      • Equal Opportunities
      • Diversity
      • Environmental Management Practices

This helps show our customers that we are a stable and reliable part of their supply chain.

Alongside quality, these are some of the areas where we hold  ourselves to the highest standards and will always work to ensure we are performing to our best.

SafeContractor: What is it and how does it benefit you:

What is it?

SafeContractor is an accreditation scheme that recognises an organisation’s capabilities for health and safety – all in one place. They are a founding member for Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP). SSIP saves contractors and clients time and money, whilst supporting them in demonstrating high levels of health and safety management.

How does it benefit our customers?

      • It gives the reassurance we’re compliant with health and safety to a set level of standards.
      • It reduces the need for completing multiple pre-qualification assessments, saving time, money and stress.
      • Easier and more efficient onboarding.
      • If you are also Safe Contractor accredited, you will be notified we work to the same standards

PackEx India 2022


Kenray recently exhibited at PackEx 2022 in Mumbai which was a fantastic event to be a part of. We got to meet a number of new clients as well as those we are already helping to Perform Better.

Having a manufacturing plant based in India, it was a great opportunity for the team to get a better understand of the environment and allow customers to become familiar with the Kenray Brand. Our Commercial Director Mark Evans joined the team over in Mumbai throughout the exhibition and spent extra time visiting our customers across India. It was a great opportunity and allowed us to build on our international relations.

We exhibited a range of our solutions including Vertical Form Fill and Seal, Horizontal Form Fill and Seal and Accessories.

Whilst at PackEx, Mark was interviewed by the FoodTechBiz. You can read their article here.
