We've always been clever packaging people...
Right from the very start, back in the '70's when Mr Paul Barter saw that the shopkeepers of Somerset needed paper bags to package their goods in.
Driving around to those shopkeepers and delivering their packaging in his trusty Ford Cortina, became the beginnings of the Wessex we are now.
Being based in the heart of Somerset, it wasn't far to Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Avon, Wiltshire and Wales. Wessex became a recognised force in the world of packaging, helping businesses, pack, store, wrap, stick and hold their goods.
For over 40 years, our family of experts has been making life easier for our customers. Which is the reason our team of technicians, buyers, logisticians, designers, sales and customer service agents come to work everyday. A team of packaging professionals, thinking about your business.
We're now a national brand, going further than just the ancient kingdom of Wessex, providing packaging solutions, materials and machinery to industries throughout the UK.
That said, we're internationally recognised and appointed as exclusive UK agents for specialist global packaging machines. Recognised as professionals, we can help as part of your supply chain and logistics teams.
We are all about partnerships and working together. We want your business to grow, that's why we go the extra mile...sometimes literally.
As a family business, we care.
For our team, customers, suppliers, environment and the communities we work and live in. That's why we're ISO 9001:2015 certified and committed to a positive, caring attitude across all our partnerships.
With these commitments we’ll continue growing…in expertise, experience and being at the forefront of the industry for innovation, ergonomics, quality & customer service. We’ve come a long way from paper bags.
We can make your packaging life easier.
That's why we're clever packaging people.

For Elliot it's not just delivering to the nation.
It's feeling like a Wessex superhero, delivering 80,000 postal bags to a global e-commerce company. Now that's something to write home about.
For Maria it's not just answering the phone.
It's speaking to a customer as a friend, knowing that she's there to help. Now that's customer service worth talking about.
For Glen it's not just a wide range of packaging solutions.
It's that 7am delivery to help start productivity on the production line. Now that's thinking of the customer first.
