How the Bag ‘N’ Box Man came to be

 


Those of you who have followed our journey or know us well, will know that not only have we been in business for nearly 40 years, but will know that The Bag ‘N’ Box Man is a real person. Terry Andrews founded our company through a passion for helping small and independent businesses, and soon became very well known in the local community. It was by a chance encounter with a customer that the name ‘The Bag ‘N’ Box Man’ became the name of Terry’s business.

“I recall being sat in my first ever office, it was a tiny room in the centre of Banbury town, and 2 customers popped their heads in the door. One of them asked if I was ‘the box ‘n’ bag man’ I told her ‘I am now!’ It was so funny, I had been looking for the perfect name for my company, I just wish I knew the lady who inspired the name so I could say thank you after all these years”,

- Terry Andrews, founder and owner

Terry was very well known within the community and has successfully grown The Bag ‘N’ Box Man to the thriving business it is today.

“It’s all to do with the wonderful team I have around me, and I certainly won't be taking any of the credit! I am so lucky to still have some of the same team members as I did when I first started. It is fantastic to see new faces have joined the team also, but it really is down to my staff who look after our customers so well”

Over the years there have been many changes, Terry has built himself a team of 12, some of whom have been here for over 30 years, and all are regarded as family. We have broadened the range to include bags, boxes, food safe packaging, catering and janitorial supplies and more recently breaking into custom printed and bespoke packaging solutions. Tjobbe, Terry’s youngest son, joined the management team in 2016, to help move the business forward digitally and built a very successful online store, making shopping with us even easier for our customers.

Our company has weathered many storms and 2020 was no exception. There aren’t many success stories from the past year but our team, like so many others, rolled up their sleeves and worked around the clock to keep up with demand. Through each wave of national lockdown as a result of the global pandemic, our team remained dedicated to helping other businesses adapt to the world of eCommerce and takeaway packaging in order to survive.  

 

The next chapter for the Bag ‘N’ Box Man

 
 

Fast forward to August 2021, and we have decided the next challenge for us to tackle is a rebrand to reflect our company ethos more accurately. For anyone who knows Terry Andrews will know how much he cares about the planet, small businesses, and of course his friends and family. Terry truly epitomizes the name Meanwell, he is an incredibly charitable man, and so is the company as a reflection of his values. From 1st of August 2021 The Bag ‘N’ Box Man will be trading as Meanwell Packaging as a loving nod to Terry. 

Fun fact! Terry is affectionately known by his family as Mr.Meanwell due to the odd failed DIY projects over the years. Thankfully, Terry also has an incredibly good sense of humour and is fully behind the name change for the business.

 
 

“This is an incredible opportunity for us to talk more openly about all the great work we do as a business, how much we give back to the community, and how much we love helping our customers. We are very environmentally conscious, and mean well with everything that we do, which lends itself very neatly to our very own eco stance, affectionately dubbed our ‘Meanwell Mission’.”

- Tjobbe Andrews, Company Director

As a company we are really excited to see where this next chapter takes us, while Terry is taking a slight step back we want to thank him for all of his hard work and dedication which has got us to this point. Also thanks to the original team members who have shown us the ropes and helped us along our way. The customers always have, and always will be, at the forefront of everything we do, and we hope to bring you many more chapters over the coming years.
