From developing new packaging ideas, applying individual branding to new concepts, and adapting packaging to the demands of international markets, we hold a wealth of technical know-how and creative expertise in designing and manufacturing food packaging.
While this proﬁciency enables us to control the whole manufacturing process, including quality checks, it also gives us the ﬂexibility to respond quickly to individual requirements, and provide our customers with a personalised, effcient service.
This underpins our vision to listen to our customers and constantly improve our products and services. Alongside a huge variety of more than 650 standard stock items, and a specialised range of food packaging sealing machinery, we create custom-made packaging to meet speciﬁc customer demands, or even smaller print runs.
From our early beginnings in 1937, we are today synonymous with producing creative food packaging solutions, in the UK and across more than 60 countries.
To ensure we keep our ﬁnger on the global packaging pulse, our team of highly-skilled, multi-lingual employees provides customer service and expert advice on how customers can adapt their packaging to meet the demands of national and international markets.
