About Us

Our History

historyShrinkwrap Machinery was founded in 1967 by David Frith, father of the current managing director Peter Frith.

David was an R & D man and can be credited with the invention of the process of packaging products using a shrinkable film.

To cut a long story short, David went on to form his own company and eventually Shrinkwrap Machinery Co Ltd was born.

To a degree a large part of Shrinkwrap’s business has always been devoted to the research and development of new ideas. This has brought about some unique pieces of equipment in many different industries where an off the shelf solution was just not available.

This ethos carries on up unto the present day; Peter and his brother Jeremy are continually working with our customers to develop faster, better and more cost effective ideas for the packaging of their products. The company has expanded and restructured allowing focus on its key parts. Shrinkwrap Machinery Co Ltd offers a British bespoke design and manufacturing service for packaging equipment and Shrinkwrap Packaging Systems Ltd offering a complete range of complementary products including consumables and spares, acting also as distributor for our European partners in packaging.

We have a continual improvement approach toward our standard equipment; always looking for design and technological advances that will benefit the end user.
