Our history

1991

Established

Greyhound Box was created in 1991 and given the name on the idea of supplying ‘Quality at Speed’, a primary attribute of a Greyhound. A USP that we still identify with today.

2001

Site Relocation

We moved to our Hunslet site in 2001 from our original base in Stanningley.

2003

Investors in People

First achieved in 2003 and continually recognise that what makes our organisation special is our people.

2003

ISO 9001

First achieved in 2003, delivering a quality service and product is very important to us and equally to have the systems in place to enable this.

2008

Major Factory Upgrade

Investing in 2 new machines allowed us to expand our factory capability and meant we could now offer printed and diecut work.

2012

ISO 14001

First achieved in 2012, we are constantly looking at how our operations affect the environment and do all we can to continually improve and have a positive impact on this through our processes.

2015

MBO

The business went through a management buyout, where the then current General Manager, Louise O’Brien bought the business.

2016

Greyham

We launched Greyham the Robox to show our creative side and support the promotion of our brand.

2016

Integrated Software Upgrade

We recognised our software at the time was not running the company as effectively as we wished. It took 2 years of going back-to-basics, training and working with the developers and is now used to run the business and drive us forward.

2016

New Machinery Investment

In 2016, we invested in a new printing machine and has allowed us to produce a higher quality product in a faster time.

2017

Business Improvement Training

The whole business went through an NVQ course, which shortly after starting became a critical driver to further improve efficiencies within the business and propelled us forward. It has allowed us to truly understand what we do and the knowledge to continue the improvements.

2017

Investors in People

We achieved the 6th Generation standard 14 years after the first achievement. We chose to pursue this standard to further connect our staff to the business and to the journey of Greyhound Box and what we are trying to achieve.

2017

Sedex

We became members of the Sedex Organisation, which has driven ethical and sustainable improvements throughout our supply chains and promotes us trade in a responsible way.

2018

ISO 9001 & 14001

We achieved the new standard to both accreditations 15 and 6 years after the first achievements respectively.

2018

New Vehicle Investment

We procured 2 new vehicles as part of our continued commitment to the protection of the environment and ISO 14001. These vehicles featured Euro-6 engines, which was particularly important with the introduction of the Clean Air Charging Zones in areas such as Leeds.

2019

ISO 45001

We achieved this standard for the first time, which relates to occupational health & safety, something we take very seriously and do everything possible to reduce risks of. We also use this to analyse our suppliers as well as ourselves.
