The-Team

Our showrooms are open to the public, and whilst our business is mainly wholesale and Business-to-Business, we do have facilities to cater for our smaller ‘cash sale’ customers. Not only do we supply packaging in pallet lots or container lots, we also believe in helping smaller businesses to grow and develop, by offering smaller pack sizes of an array of products. Our modern warehouse on the Naas Road, allows for easy access for our customers to collect their products (if required).

We are the agent and distributor for a number of large manufacturing companies based throughout Europe including, RPC Containers, PET Power, Englass, Worldwide Dispensers, to name but a few.
