If your packaging can be returned, our unique tri-trans system really comes into its own, its toughness and flexibility make it ideal for reusable cases.

We constantly push at the boundaries of design to make products that are effectively different. We have pioneered many techniques, and patented our signature process of edge sealing the fluted polypropylene. Some of these projects have led us to pioneer new polypropylene plastic packaging concepts such as corrugated cases with all edges sealed for enhanced strength and cleanliness, and polypropylene tubes with amazing graphic effects including lenticular.

Amongst the companies who benefit from the versatility of our products are the overwhelming majority of the UK and French supermarkets, major food processors such as Youngs Seafoods and materials handling companies such as UKMail.
