Polybags - a brief history

Polybags was founded in 1961 when Mr Geoffrey Davies began making polythene bags in his garage, using a bag-making machine that he'd found advertised in his local newspaper. Sales were made door-to-door in the local area, with Geoffrey's wife Pamela helping out with deliveries as she took the baby about for a walk!

As orders increased, Polybags moved from the Davies' garage to factory premises, whilst Geoffrey's old college friend Brian Turner came on board to oversee production, which now involved on-site blown-film extrusion as Polybags began to make their own polythene.

Soon Polybags was operating around the clock, with 24-hour extrusion leading to increased output, business growth and the need for ever-larger premises. A move to Alperton in west London saw the company expand before further growth and a relocation in the 1980s to Greenford in Middlesex, where the company is based to this day.

Now operating in a 50,000 square-foot factory with a newly-expanded warehouse, Polybags runs 13 blown film extruders and operates 12 conversion lines to produce the best selection of polythene packaging products on the market - totalling 80 tonnes of polythene products per week.

With managing director Jon Lomax at the helm since the 1990s, Polybags has continued to innovate, with new systems to manage scheduling, production and pricing along with a market-leading website at polybags.co.uk since 1999 - long before most companies had an online presence.
