Who are Polypackaging?

The company was formed in 1994 with the directors of the company having fifteen years of previous experience within the polystyrene industry. The idea was developed when it was cleverly identified that there was a gap in the market for the manufacture of polystyrene protective packaging within South West Scotland.

Polypackaging Factory

A purpose built plant dedicated to the manufacture of polystyrene was commissioned and so Polypackaging was born. Since the launch, the company has expanded from the original three members of staff and currently employs fifteen people at the plant in Ayr.

Within the company, quality is also of the utmost importance and commitment to this area has been recognised by the ISO inspection team who have awarded the company ISO 9001 accreditation in 1998. The company are members of The Ayrshire Quality Association, The SGS Quality Network and The Ayrshire Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

When Polypackaging first started trading, the core business was directed towards the fishing industry, with production concentrating on all types of polystyrene fish boxes. The company later diversified and started production for other sectors too. These included the building, electronics, promotional gifts and drinks industries.
