Employee-owned packaging company Kite Packaging has launched a new range of industrial knives and cutters that ensure safe precision in the warehouse.

The company is a member of the Engineering and Manufacturing Network (EMN) and is based at Follinsby Park in Gateshead.

With a large range of options to choose from, these heavy-duty products are designed with quality in mind and built to be strong and durable to suit a wide range of applications, particularly within the industrial and warehousing industries.

The knives are available as auto-retractable – ensuring increased safety as the knife automatically retracts once pressure is removed from the blade slider, as well as manual – which come with 8 spare blades inside, meaning the user simply snaps of the existing one to release a new one, ensuring the knives can be used time and time again.

Kite’s safety box cutter is an extremely simple yet effective product. Designed with safety in mind it has a cover cap to contain the hook blade meaning it is never exposed and the moulded handle is designed to fit comfortably in the user’s hand to improve grip and stability. It works effortlessly through stretch film, polythene, plastic strapping and bubble wrap.
