Paua are a re-useable packaging materials technology company, originally born out of the frustration of sports equipment being damaged in transit, our first product prototypes were designed and built to transport high value surfboards around the globe.
Since 2016 we have dedicated years to researching and developing the ultimate in reusable, lightweight, durable and highly protective packaging solutions which are now used globally in logistics, sports, pharmaceutical, tactical and many more industries.
Paua have recently opened a new headquarters in Chichester dedicated to R&D, Innovation and Rapid Prototyping. The new facility has brought together our team in one location and allowed us to bring the majority of our prototyping inhouse. The move has also provided an increased capacity to design and develop new products and gives the capability to further test our materials.
In addition to the new space and facilities, the new location has also meant the creation of six new roles in our team, in order to increase output to match customer demands.
The Chichester District Council economic team were fundamental in our move to chichester, from support with suggesting premises, to connecting us with other businesses, organisations and suppliers. The grant they provided to purchase machinery has meant we were able to expand our team and employ more people locally.
