Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury Celebrates 70 years in Business

JohnChadwickandMartinHardman smlClondalkin Flexible Packaging Bury, formerly  Chadwicks of Bury, is celebrating 70 years in flexible packaging.

Today CFP Bury is the world’s leading manufacturer of pre-cut lids and its success can  be traced back to the humble milk bottle top.

In 1935 Ronald Chadwick began work as a general supplier to the farming community around Bury offering local farmers everything they needed for their businesses. In time this included tops to cover the bottles of milk filled on the farms. Later, when aluminium became the material of choice for this closure, Ronald invested in a punching machine to produce the metal lids quickly and easily and, unwittingly, he began CFP Bury’s journey as the world’s leading producer of pre-cut lids.

In the late 1990’s Chadwicks of Bury became part of the global Clondalkin group and CFP Bury now boasts the largest bank of cutting presses and cutting tools in Europe. In addition, it offers state of the art flexo printing and the latest lidding technology, including SMARTembossing, both laser and mechanical perforations and unique coding capability. Customers have access to an extensive range of lidding materials, produced at the company’s sister site in The Netherlands, CFP Vaassen.

John Chadwick, Managing Director at CFP Bury has been with the company for 30 years. Commenting on the company’s anniversary he said: “To reach such a significant milestone is a huge achievement. Decades of manufacturing lids has created a huge wealth of knowledge and expertise, all of  which current and potential customers benefit from, as we draw on the experience gained to provide new solutions. It has also meant overcoming many challenges including economic instability, increased global competition, and advancement in technologies.  Thanks to our talented team and our commitment to innovation and investment, we have kept ahead of these changes to become the successful company we are today. We are proud to celebrate 70 years.

“Our development has been built on a belief in taking progressive steps whilst maintaining our reputation for innovation, high standards, world class service and technical support. With 50 cutting presses and over 300 cutting tools at our disposal we’re able to offer customers very high levels of flexibility and responsiveness.”

CFP Bury has developed a reputation for leading the way in pre-cut lid solutions in the dairy, food and beverage sectors.

John Chadwick continued: “Six years ago we expanded our capability and offering  by investing in equipment to produce shrink sleeves and transferring expertise from our sister site in Switzerland, CFP Kirchberg. Today, through the Clondalkin group of companies, we can offer an even wider product range, from printed laminates and stand up pouches to barrier films and printed bundlewrap.”

The company is one of 11 production facilities operating throughout Europe and North America under Clondalkin Flexible Packaging.

Across its 11 manufacturing operations, in the UK, Europe and North America, the Clondalkin Flexible Packaging group  covers all aspects of flexible packaging from extrusion of raw materials, flexo & gravure print, lidding, biodegradable products, skin films, film lamination, coating, metalising & conversion into bags of all types and sizes.
