Interesting things we’ve packaged over the years

Posted on 31st August 2018

With Johnson Baker now over 80 years old, we’ve dealt with a lot of strange requests over the years, leading to us packaging a variety of weird and wonderful things!

After the fall of the Berlin Wall, an enterprising firm, started by a man putting pieces of the Berlin Wall in the boot of his Volvo, began encapsulating pieces of the iconic wall in acrylic. This meant that for a time, Johnson Baker could boast that they packaged the Berlin Wall, provided boxes for pieces of this historic monument to rest in.

Sticking on this historical theme, we also boxed Spitfire engines.

Another strange object we were requested to package was a gold-plated piston. This was done on a very tight deadline, as was to commemorate a momentous landmark in the relationship between Perkins Diesel Engines and JCB.

Recently, we made 4000 medal boxes for the Western Daily Press newspaper, to celebrate its 125th year.

Over our history we’ve had many interesting clients, including Rolls Royce, Buckingham Palace, Arsenal FC and even the Olympic Games.
