WHO WE ARE
JJ O’Toole Ltd. are Ireland’s leading packaging supplier. We endeavour to make the business of packaging as easy as possible for our customers, limiting the links in the supply chain for customer convenience. Essentially, we are a one-stop-shop for exceptional packaging solutions.
Creativity and innovation are at the heart of what we do. Customers engage us to develop innovative, tailor-made packaging solutions to meet their unique requirements. All necessary elements are taken into consideration when developing a solution for a client, from design to storage space.
Our objective is always to create a packaging solution that perfectly reflects a customer’s brand. We want your packaging to be your perfect marketing tool. Our Graphic Design team can create artwork exactly to your specification and are happy to offer their expertise on all functionality and design elements. Many customers come to us when embarking on a rebrand and our creative team can assist in all aspects of this, ensuring that packaging and marketing collateral are consistent.
Delivering excellent quality with exceptional service – that is our promise. The production of our packaging products is outsourced to suppliers of the highest standard across Europe, China and the Far East. We ensure that our suppliers meet strict requirements so as to maintain the high standard of quality which we and our customers expect.
Luxury orders will receive production samples in advance of mass production, ensuring that all elements are quality checked and the customer is happy with the finished product.
All items are subject to rigorous quality control inspections at various intervals throughout the process so as to meet our high standards of quality.
SUPPLY CHAIN & LOGISTICS
For our clients’ convenience, we provide a choice of delivery options. The client can choose to receive a one-drop delivery, taking all pieces of their order in one delivery for storage on their own premises. Alternatively, our clients can choose a call-off service where we hold the stock in storage in our own warehouse and they can order from their bank of stock as required.
As JJ O’Toole operates throughout the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, the United Kingdom and further afield, we offer freight by road, sea and air in partnership with our reliable logistics providers.
We have various payment options available for our clients, including flexible payment schedules and agreed payment plans.
PLAIN PACKAGING OPTIONS
JJ O’Toole Ltd also has a wide range of off-the-shelf packaging available for next day delivery. This is perfect for smaller businesses who don’t want to commit to branded packaging and the wide range of popular designs, sizes and variations of packaging means that we have something to suit all industries.
Excerpts from a feature in the Centre for Family Business E-zine in November 2016.
Learning to be both a Leader and a Caretaker —Vicki O’Toole and JJ O’Toole Ltd.
‘JJ O’Toole Ltd. is a 103 year-old family business owned and managed by Ms. Vicki O’Toole. The story starts in 1914 when JJ O’Toole established his business on Patrick Street in Limerick. The small business began trading and supplying packaging and branded stationery to local businesses.’
When the government introduced the plastic bag levy, the market for plastic packaging collapsed. Initially, JJ O’Toole was not too worried about the effect on business but this was soon to change. Vicki explains “turnover slumped by 40% almost immediately, forcing the company to “adapt or die”.
‘In 2011, she was named Image Magazine’s Business Woman of the Year. In 2014, JJ O’Toole celebrated its 100th year in business, which was one of the greatest milestones and sources of relief for Vicki. Speaking at the recent DCU CFB Women in Family Business event, Vicki O’Toole explains her journey from a stay at home mother to Managing Director of JJ O’Toole Ltd.’
