Shrinkwrap Machinery is a local family engineering business based in Poole; the team are experts in the design and manufacture of packaging equipment, in particular shrink wrapping machines for various different industries at home and abroad. This year sees Shrinkwrap reach an amazing milestone in its history: 50 years in business.
We feel kind of special! We are one of the last remaining independent and family run manufacturers of this type of equipment left in the UK. It’s been tough at times to compete in the international market, but sticking to our core principals of delivering a high standard, quality product that exceeds our customer expectations has enabled us to maintain an edge on that competition and time and again we find businesses who want to use our product returning to us, having tried the alternative and it falling short of their expectations. ‘We want to buy British’ is a phrase that is increasingly part of our dialogue with prospective customers.
We feel it is a great achievement to have reached 50 years in business and we want to shout about it! We have a year of activity planned involving our customers and suppliers and we also thought that this is a great opportunity to share our success with the wider British public, both locally and nationally. We hope that our business can set an example to others.
With this in mind we invited Robert Syms Conservative MP for Poole to our factory on the 3rd March. Robert commented “I congratulate Shrinkwrap Machinery, a great British company based in Poole, on its 50th Anniversary. It was a pleasure to meet the Directors and Staff and hear about their exciting plans for the future”.
Shrinkwrap Machinery is owned and managed by Peter & Jeremy Frith. Their father David Frith founded the company in 1967 but handed over control of the business to his sons some years ago, Jeremy’s wife Debbie is also involved in the business in sales and marketing support.
