Hidden talents of Universal

We salute anyone who has the confidence (and the voice) to stand up on stage and sing. In addition to her General Manager gig here at Universal Packaging, Kylie Taylor is out there on a regular basis performing as one half of a covers duo and fronting a band performing original numbers.

Meet the Team: Darrin Kennedy, National Sales Manager

After earning his stripes as Regional Manager at Spicers NZ, Darrin (or DK, as everyone knows him), landed on his feet as our National Sales Manager at Universal. With extensive industry knowledge and the power of a positive outlook DK is now looking forward to connecting with more customers and helping them meet their goals. Then, if the conditions are right, he’ll be getting out the back at Orewa Beach for a wave or two.

‘Getting in behind’ our team day

Late in March the Universal Packaging team upped sticks and headed out to participate in a variety of outdoor activities at the picturesque Makoura Lodge.

Hidden talents of Universal

The great bard wrote ‘Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast’. Our customer service expert Abby McKee certainly knows how to make people feel welcome and heard here. In our latest look at Universal’s hidden talents, we seek how her confident, can-do demeanour at work also feeds into a creative outlet on the stage.

Par on the course

A report from the golf. Whether they had the drive for success or were just putting around, everyone who attended this year’s Spicers Charity Golf Day was swinging fore the best. Par Gardiner, Spicers Marketing Co-ordinator, reported back from the green.

Meet the Team: Pip Beets, Business Development Manager

It’s imperative that Kiwi companies understand the efficiencies and intricacies of protecting freight during shipping, and how Universal can help them evolve, grow, and thrive. That’s why the arrival of Pip to the team has been just the ticket – both for our company and our clients.

Meet the team: Sarah Menefy

The role of a service coordinator is never a dull one. It’s not quite herding cats – but some days it can sure seem that way.

Travel broadens the mind…

…and, at Interpack, boosts means and methods.
Last month, two of our team members travelled to Europe to attend Interpack – the triennial packaging and processing trade fair held in Dusseldorf, Germany.
With over 2,700 exhibitors and more than 170,000 visitors, the event is a great opportunity for suppliers and customers to connect, share and inspire with new ideas and fresh innovation.

Breakfast beneficence

On the 16th of June we held a Pink Ribbon Breakfast here at Universal Packaging. The event provided both a wonderful opportunity to catch up with some great people (and eat delicious food), and the chance to support a truly vital charity.
