Company profile

About us

Driven by the increasing demand for a high-quality finished product Dodhia Packaging Kenya Ltd (DPKL) continues to explore ways to differentiate itself from the ever-increasing competition in both the Kenyan and the larger East African region Market. 

DPKL has specialized in producing a wide range of corrugated cartons and boxes for customers across all sectors of the economy.

DPKL has steadily improved its quality, range, volume and capacity of products since its establishment in 1974.

“Five decades later and DPKL is now capable of producing in excess of 2,600 tonnes a month; making it the largest player in the Kenyan cardboard packaging industry,” 

“One of the main factors that made this possible has been the continuous improvement strategy, where investment has been made in high speed production machinery, add-ons and modifications to make productivity the best it can be and training/employment of high skilled manpower.”

The Company’s recent partnership with Riley Packaging in Uganda further supported this strategy, resulting in DPKL becoming one of the largest suppliers of corrugated cartons in East and Central Africa.

An ISO 9001:2015 certified Company, DPKL has a reputation for keeping a close eye on quality and customer service, conducting all the relevant checks before a product leaves the factory. Products are always accompanied with certificate of analysis for quality assurance.

As the East African market becomes more and more sophisticated, DPKL expect the demand for innovative and attractive packaging to continue growing. To meet this demand, ongoing research and development (R&D) and equipment upgrades are required.

 Over the past five years, DPKL has focused on improving/converting the production machineries with the latest technological advances in packaging. Our machines now have more automated elements which have increased our manufacturing productivity, efficiency, quality and capability to offer customers a larger variety of carton.


Products

DPKL specializes in production and distribution of corrugated cardboard cartons namely;

Fish Boxes, Flower Boxes, Horticultural Boxes and General Packaging boxes among others spread into the following categories:

  • Regular Slotted Cartons (RSC) including C38, C48 and C96.
  • Die-Cut Cartons including Trays
  •  Single Facer Kraft
  •  Layer pads and Partitions

Sustainability

Environmentally-friendly production has always been a priority for DPKL and marks another core pillar of the Company’s continuous improvement, which ultimately revolves around increasing productivity and quality in line with a reduced carbon footprint.

“Made of paper and starch glue, our corrugated carton is 100 percent recyclable. Moreover, all of our waste from the production process is supplied to a waste paper collector who in turn sends back to paper millers for making of paper. This cyclical process is not only sustainable, but cost-effective and secures our supply of raw materials,”

Most of our raw materials are from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified sources.

Adopting Kaizen across all areas of its core activities has resulted in a winning strategy that continues to stand DPKL head and shoulders above the competition. Focusing on improvements to its corrugated carton product range that align with industry needs, DPKL will place even more emphasis on cementing client relationships and utilising its reputation as a springboard to form new ones. 

Supported by an experienced team of packaging professionals and state of the art manufacturing facilities, an enviable reputation has been created by adopting excellent service, superb quality products and competitive pricing.
