Shrinkwrap Machinery have reached the ripe old age of 50!

The business was founded by current directors Peter & Jeremy’s late father, David Frith.

David started Shrinkwrap Machinery Co Ltd on the 18th October 1967. The idea of wrapping polythene around products and applying heat to them had been his invention in the mid 1950’s whilst he was running his own R&D company called Taylor Unity . Soon to be known as shrink wrapping, the process, as we now know it, is a successful world wide industry.

David ran the Shrinkwrap business well into his 70’s and was a strong influence to both sons who also chose careers in engineering.
