We are Clever Packaging People®
At the end of the day we are still human. Just crazily obsessed with packaging.

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 MK1 Transit 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 46 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 every day—a team of packaging professionals thinking about your business.

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 BRCGS and 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.

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 4.30am start to deliver productivity on the production line.

Now that's thinking of the customer first.
