“I am honoured our efforts have received this sort of recognition,” Mr Roberts said, “Packaworld has taken big steps forward recently, and we are dedicated to enabling people around the world to play the sports they love.”
He said Packaworld was “much more than a supplier of sporting equipment” with a range of products that resolved issues of portability, storage and safety, designed in collaboration with passionate sportspeople and organisations.
Mr Roberts said much of Packaworld’s success comes from the relationships the company has built around the world, and a lot of the credit went to clients and distributors for their willing participation in projects to create new products and solutions to age-old problems.
