Company history

We were established in 1961 by Mr Geoffrey Davies who purchased a bag making machine advertised in the local paper and sold door to door. As sales grew, Geoffrey Davies teamed up with college friend Brian Turner who became in charge of production and the business moved firstly to a lock-up garage and then on to larger factory premises in Alperton, West London.

By 1985 we had moved to a bigger factory in Greenford, West London and used the extra space to continue to develop our extrusion capabilities and range of stock items. After some consolidation, we now have a new management team headed by Jon Lomax and are looking to continue Polybags' development and success
