Conway Packing Services Ltd (“CPS”) is a Black Country based company formed in 1991. CPS was created by enlisting a number of managers working within the packaging industry who collectively have in excess of 200 years’ hands-on experience to create a successful specialist business.

CPS, using the latest technology and highly skilled crafts people, offer a bespoke packaging, design, manufacturing and packing service to businesses, from multi-nationals to smaller SMEs. CPS operates from premises covering 18 acres and relied upon its long partnership with Lloyds Bank to facilitate its further expansion.

Hawkins Hatton Corporate Lawyers (“HH”) who acted for Lloyds Bank in the transaction ensured the timeline for completion was achieved by taking a commercial approach delivered on a team basis.

Colin Rodrigues (partner of HH) said “this deal had a number of complexities to unwrap but this is all part and parcel of how HH delivers its service for the Bank and the Bank’s clients and this is done by thinking laterally and focusing on solution based advice.”

David Chance, Relationship Director at Lloyds Commercial Banking, said that “CPS are not just a long standing client of Lloyds but a company I have dealt with for a number of years and we were proud to support CPS with their continued expansion.”

David Conway (director of CPS) commented that “expansion was a key objective for CPS and knowing that we had the backing of Lloyds, it was a natural step to continue to expand CPS in a way which would enable the business to gear up for further growth, and deliver more employment opportunities within the Black Country”.
