Lancashire, May 4, 2023: Mantle Packaging Machinery Limited, an award-winning UK-based manufacturer of food packaging machinery, is pleased to announce the internationalisation of its website, making its food packaging machines, consumables and services available to a global audience.
The website – www.mantlepackaging.co.uk – can be accessed in multiple languages. These include Arabic, French, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish. The site now offers distributors and customers from within Europe, Saudi Arabia and the Middle East region the opportunity to browse and easily understand product specifications, as well as purchase from a comprehensive range of high-quality machinery products.
A Lancashire Business
Mantle Packaging Machinery Ltd is a UK family-run business that traces its story back to 1997. From a single unit in the heart of Whalley, Lancashire, husband and wife team Ken and Christine Mantle developed a range of high quality food packaging machinery which are still manufactured on the premises. Now in the hands of their daughters, Laura and Philippa, the business combines 45 years’ experience in packaging machinery design and manufacture. Their machines are commonly found in supermarkets, bakeries, farm shops, butchers and many other food preparation businesses throughout the UK and internationally.
The internationalisation of the website was a joint project. Led by a team from Mantle Packaging Machinery, it also included strategic marketing and digital consultancy Market Accents, the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce who created the new international pages, and Brightlines Translation Limited, who handled the translation for the localised pages. The project qualified for the Internationalisation Fund which was provided by the UK Department of Business and Trade.
As Laura Sieczkowski, Mantle Packaging Machinery’s Managing Director, said, “From the early days when our parents started the business, our aim was to provide high quality machinery and support that with excellent customer service. The range of machines that we manufacture is extensive, and there isn’t another manufacture in our market that covers such a comprehensive range. The internationalisation of the website is the next stage in our business journey and clearly demonstrates our ongoing commitment to serve our customers everywhere in the best way possible. By making our products more accessible to distributors and customers in Europe and the MENA region, we are expanding our reach and continuing to grow as a company.”
Philippa Mantle-Bowden, Mantle Packaging Machinery’s Marketing Director explained that, “the localisation of our pages was very carefully thought out, involving specialists in key areas. Having agreed on our international strategy, we selected products to feature and then had the copy transcreated in the seven languages. The web pages were designed to suit the language, cultural and regional preferences of our customers abroad. All this will improve the international user experience.”
Noreen Cesareo, Principal at Market Accents said, “What Mantle Packaging Machinery Limited have done is gain a strong competitive advantage. By providing website content in multiple languages, and tailoring it to the preferences of different target audiences, they will attract new customers who would otherwise have not come across their products and services. As part of our advisory services, we also ensured there is localised SEO, increasing their visibility in search engine results and attracting more organic traffic to the website.”
Shafiq Khan, Internet Services Manager at the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce handled the development of the international web pages. He added, “The project involved detailed consideration to make sure the website is accessible to users from different regions and cultures. This included adapting design elements – such as layout, colour schemes and images – to appeal to a specific audience.”
