     TELEPHONE :- 01253 876593

      FAX  :- 01253  870142


E-Mail :-



Also at the same time we are also going to prioritise on our “official” Limited Company name, UK Polythene Packaging Ltd as our primary profile and not XL Packaging as we have done in the past – again just to mark this point as the start of our exciting new future and branding.  However if you prefer to still use XL Packaging Co for us it is still acceptable and we will keep it as a trading name.

We look forward to servicing all new and existing customers with the same outstanding degree of commitment (your reviews) we have always done.

UK Polythene Packaging eBay shop coming soon

At UK Polythene Packaging Limited we are always looking at ways of offering our services to an ever wider customer base. We know and our existing customers know what great customer service and product knowledge we offer – eBay is a great way to continue to spread the word.

We are currently beginning the process of listing our key stock items on eBay and will then begin building our own eBay shop to enable us to list all our standard stock items. Also to be listed are special items which from time to time we are able to offer at very low trade prices. These ends of line items and production over runs are of course produced to our usual high quality standard.

Further announcements to follow.

Christmas & New Year Shutdown 2014

Please be advised we will be closed for the Christmas and New Year period from 4pm on Monday 22nd December 2014. We will re-open at 9am on Monday 5th January 2015.

We want to wish all our business partners – customers and suppliers alike, a relaxing and peaceful Christmas and all the best for the New Year & 2015.

2014 has been another successful year of growth for XL Packaging Co / UK Polythene Packaging Ltd.

We have and will continue to provide an excellent service to our existing customers who over the years have come to value the reliability and good old fashioned level of service offered by us, we have also been able to attract new customers with our reputation within the various industries we currently supply.

We are not the largest packaging company but we believe the service levels we offer and provide makes us the right fit for our customers – big enough to cope with whatever your requirement may be while still being small enough to offer a personal service to our customers and an ability to monitor and react to our customers’ requirements.

We pride ourselves on our sales, technical support and the back up we deliver to all our accounts.

Why not give us a call to discuss your requirements.

At XL Packaging we are still keen to support various charities with activities, donations and also where we can help with special requests from local charity bodies.

Bespoke packaging solution for the laundry industry

At UK Polythene Packaging Ltd we are always looking at ways to help our customers come up with new solutions to their packaging needs.

A recent example of this is when our customer had a requirement for a low slip laundry film for their new fully automated industrial laundry facility. The requirement was for the material to have the specific low slip qualities normally found in a thicker film but was required in the thickness of their previous wrapping films.  Here the UK Polythene Packaging team were able to react quickly to this challenge and trial a newly formulated polymer which had the properties required but in a thinner gauge more suited to the laundry process.

Just as important to the customer was the assurance that once a solution was found we had quality procedures in place to ensure future consistency of supply.  This is one instance of many where we can work together with our customers to achieve the best solution to their packaging requirements.

Please get in contact to discuss your requirements & goals and find out how UK Polythene Packaging Ltd can help you with your specific packaging needs.
