Our Story

The plastic packaging industry in the early 1970's saw increasing demand from the still very productive manufacturing bases in the south east of England. In the late summer of 1972, Ron Wells decided to start up Sun Plastics Ltd, after a highly successful footing as London and South Account Manager at Alida Packaging.


Teaming up with exciting clients such as Thermos, British Rail, General Electric, and Coca Cola showed prospective customers that Sun Plastics were a name to trust, citing our personal touch, with quality products delivered on time. Needless to say, with the increased demand from these clients, the head office (a lock-up garage in Ilford) was quickly outgrown, and new premises were sought, to maintain higher stock levels, for faster despatch.

The move to Romford increased the scope of delivery speed, just-in-time stock sourcing, whilst staying close to the pull of the London manufacturing sector. After 25 years, and the rising costs associated with near London dwelling, led us to our current home in Chelmsford. From here, we've seen another jump in ability to stock more, pick quicker, and deliver next day, across mainland UK, and into Europe for the first time.

We constantly deal with customer enquiries and orders quickly and efficiently. You can be assured of a speedy delivery on all items in stock, and bespoke items always have a short turnaround time.
