Royal seal of approval

A supplier of tamper evident products and security seals has been granted the status of Royal Warrant of Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen for services to the Royal Household over several years.

As of January 2014, Versapak International Ltd was granted a Royal Warrant for provisions supplied to the Royal Household since 2003.

For the last ten years, the Kent-based firm has supplied cash bags, mail pouches and security seals to Windsor Castle, St James’ Palace, Buckingham Palace and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. The Royal Warrant of Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen is the highest royal accolade available to companies.

The practice of awarding recognition to suppliers of goods and services to the Sovereign has been in place since the Middle Ages. Around eight hundred have been granted Royal Warrant status.

Royal Warrants are only awarded to companies that provide goods or services to the Royal Household for a prolonged time and that meet quality standards, whilst at the same time providing impeccable service. Versapak is able to display the Royal Coat of Arms on its products, advertising, packaging and stationery, whilst also being permitted to use the legend ‘By Appointment’ in recognition of the facilities provided to the Royal Household.

Versapak was founded in 1973 as a family-owned business by Ian Anderson and was named for its first tamper-evident mail pouch. Ian remains as the Chairman of Versapak.

Leon Edwards, Group Managing Director of Versapak International Ltd., said the firm was absolutely delighted. “The granting of the Royal Warrant just goes to highlight the quality of the products and service that we provide, not just to the Queen’s Household, but to all of our clients and customers.

“The status is an acknowledgement of our dependability and our consistently excellent service. We’ll be displaying the Royal Coat of Arms with great pride, taking satisfaction in the fact that we’re part of a select group of companies to have achieved this special honour. We hope to continue our working relationship with the Royal Household for many more years to come.”
