Custom Cardboard Box Manufacturers

Here at Custom Cartons, we are passionate about making cardboard boxes. And we are good at it too. We’ve been supplying to manufacturers, distributors and retailers in Tauranga, Hamilton, Rotorua and throughout New Zealand since 1997 - all from our factory in Tauranga.

While we like to keep our cardboard box manufacturing services and process simple (because we believe simplicity is the key to great quality!), there is a bit of cleverness in every cardboard carton we make.

'I’ve just started a new cottage industry business and I am sending out my hand created products locally and internationally. I needed a good shipping carton and I contacted Custom Cartons as well as others for help. Custom cartons were the first to get back to me and were really helpful. I placed my order after they shipped a sample to me, and I am delighted with the cartons. Really sturdy, strong and perfect. Customer service was excellent. Very much recommend!'
