Packing and Shipping Wide and High Load – November 2019


When you need to move an oversized load from origin to destination with apertures protected from ingress of dirt and water look no further than LV Valenbeck and our parent Company LV Shipping & Transport.

We recently blanked and sealed the apertures on a load measuring over 5m in height when loaded and over 3.5m in width.

The Team here at LV Valenbeck co-ordinated the packing, loading and delivery of the load to ensure on-time delivery at site to coincide with arrival of a mobile crane for offloading.

Made in North East Awards Finalists – October 2019

The Team here at LV Valenbeck were thrilled to be nominated for, and be finalist in, the Insider Made in the North East Awards in the under £25milion category.

This is recognition for the hard work and pride that everyone at LV Valenbeck has put in to our continuous improvement and continued growth in recent years. Any company is only as good as the employees it has working within it and we proud to say that our Team are willing to go the extra mile to ensure we provide our clients with cardboard and timber export packing solutions whilst committing to on time delivery demands being met.

The event which was held at Hardwick Hall was a great success and we extend hearty congratulation to Hyperdrive Innovation who were category winners on the night.

New Saw – March 2019

We are pleased to be able to share news of further investment and improvement in our export packing and case making operation here in Jarrow with the introduction of our new automated cross cut saw. The saw has a high speed pusher with automated outfeed and rotating table which significantly reduces cutting times and increases productivity. An essential addition to keep up with our expanding export case making business and assuring on time deliveries for an expanding client base.

Further investment is planned in the near future to make improvements in data transfer to the point of manufacture and to speed up our already industry leading response times.

Christmas – December 2018

Christmas Jumper Day for MacMillan & Gift Exchange

The Team here at Jarrow entered in to the festive spirit by participating in a Christmas Jumper Day for MacMillan Cancer Support raising a total of £200. Gifts were exchanged through an anonymous gift exchange making for an eventful and amusing afternoon.

Do your goods require multiple inspection or multiple use? – July 18

Our Team here at Jarrow recently manufactured an intricate case for multi-Inspection and multi-use purposes, thus solving a particular problem for a long standing client.

The case was designed and manufactured with a hinged side fitted with handles to allow a visual inspection at first point of delivery. For further detailed inspection purposes at point of use the whole outer shell of the case is held in place with quick release fastenings in such a way as to allow the outer shell of the case to slide off leaving individual removable tool storage cases for use on site.

Upon completion of the work onsite the tools may be repacked, the outer shell of the case slid back in to place and secured in place with the quick release fastenings, which are fixed to the case side and base to ensure they are not lost, and transported back to point of origin or stored for further use.

Are you ISO9001:2015 accredited? – February 2018

Congratulations to our Team here at LV Valenbeck for passing the stringent audit process to become the first office in the LV Group to achieve ISO9001:2015 accreditation.

All internal systems and procedures are audited internally and externally to ensure the highest levels of compliance and traceability. The revised 2015 are a significant change to previous accreditation requirements and our Management Team passed the accreditation audit with no none conformances.

Security and Access Improvements – May 2018

Having recently completed the refurbishment of our ground and first floor offices we have also improved security and access to our facility with the installation of a new front door to our main entrance, complete with LV Group Icons and remote access control.

Security is paramount here at LV Valenbeck and our 65,000ft² manufacturing facility here in Jarrow is fitted with entrance control systems and roller shutter doors to our production areas have infra-red intruder detection technology to keep goods safe whilst we carry out export packing.
