Packaging Supplies in the UK & Europe since 1953

About Transpack Ltd

Transpack Ltd - Packaging Supplies

We are a long established medium sized packaging and polythene supplier - we have recently celebrated our 60th anniversary. We are based in Totton, Southampton - right on the edge of the New Forest.

Transpack started life as Transatlantic Plastics in 1953 in a single room shop in Fulham Palace Rd, London, selling small quantities of Polythene bags with, or so the story goes, a shoe box for a till.

By the late 60's and early 70's Transatlantic Plastics had become one of the largest suppliers of polythene bags, secondary double glazing, and gardening & DIY products in the South of England. We were supplying such companies as the Forestry Commission, various Police Forces, many Hospitals & even British Airways with front wheel covers for the Concorde. We also had a manufacturing & special fabrications plant at Ventnor on the Isle of Wight and 18 retail shops in total.

In 1977 Transatlantic Plastics supplied many miles of red, white & blue polythene for flags & bunting for the Queens Silver Jubilee. In the early 80's we added two more shops in the South & two more in the Midlands with a large warehouse at Daventry, we also had a regular stand at the Chelsea Flower Show.

The majority of the retail shops closed and Transatlantic Plastics eventually evolved into Transpack Ltd expanding its ranges into Packaging & Gift Packaging products that you see on the current Website today.
