Hand Assembly and Packing

You’re in safe hands!

At Orchardville Works we understand that some products need a helping hand when it comes to being perfectly presented. When attention to detail is paramount, our team will roll up their sleeves and tackle all manner of hand assembly projects, including counting and collation, ensuring a consistently high-quality finish when your products cannot be machine packed.

Thanks to over 25 years’ experience, our talented team of adults with learning disability and autism can assemble or package any type of product, including greeting cards, gift sets and print work. For packaging with multiple components, we can fulfil items in an assortment of trays, bags or boxes, ready for distribution or point of sale.

Assembling a premium gift pack, handling a delicate product or packing fiddly items are all part of Orchardville Works’ hand packing service. But it’s not just about putting together snacking packs or hand tying confectionery bags; hand assembly can also be used to complement a product where machine work has been used before or after, such as adding additional bottles to an existing cosmetic kit. We also offer full reworking, quality checking and labelling services.

Often fragile and delicate products are still best suited for hand assembly. Our experienced team have a keen eye for detail, helping you create the ‘wow factor’ you’re looking for with your product packaging. Clients are regularly amazed at how our team can execute intricate and detailed hand assembly work. Typical hand assembly, finishing and packing projects include:

  • greeting cards, gift sets, sample books / packs and print finishing
  • goodie bags, affixing tags, decorating existing goods, product hand assembly
  • labelling, relabeling, collating and counting
  • delegate packs, knot tying, health and safety packs and school packs
