Our story can be traced back to the box-making business started by the Smith Family in East London in the 1940s. During the next half a century we grew our reputation for quality engineering and a dedication to our customers. As we grew our scale, we grew our capabilities – adding papermaking and recycling so we could view our customers’ challenges in the whole and not just one part. In recent times, our business has experienced rapid growth, as well as acquiring businesses across Europe and in North America. This growth saw us become one of the largest companies listed on the London Stock Exchange. Our vision “To be the leading supplier of sustainable packaging solutions” serves us well. We are proud of the progress we have made and the growth we have achieved in our chosen markets.
Today, we operate in more than 30 different countries, proudly employing over 30,000 people. It’s thanks to the skills and knowledge of our employees that we are able to provide our customers with strategic support across their entire packaging Supply Cycle.
