FDL Builds Relationship to Last With AST

UK single-source packaging solutions provider, FDL Packaging Group of Haydock, Merseyside, has been named exclusive UK distributor for AST Plastic Containers, the German leader in blow-moulded plastic packaging. The new relationship with AST represents a major extension to FDL’s already impressive product range now bolstered by AST’s market-leading offering of high quality containers in high density polyethylene.

From the outset, FDL had recognised a kindred spirit in AST as a company that, over a period of more than thirty years, had mirrored its own success in establishing itself as market leader in the field of plastic packaging in much the same way that FDL had established market leadership with its signature range of fibre drums. The relationship itself is destined to be a lasting one, based as it is upon similar histories, philosophies and a strong emphasis on quality, durability and choice.

The addition of AST to the FDL portfolio now provides FDL with an equally strong offering in both the highest quality fibre-based and plastic products in addition to its comprehensive range of steel drums, bulk containers, corrugated and general packaging.

AST currently employs over 100 people at its headquarters in Erndtebruck, Germany. Increasing demand for its product range in the UK has led AST to establish a second manufacturing plant locally in Wrexham to produce high quality plastic containers from 5 to 30 litres in capacity using the latest extrusion blow-moulding technology.

AST produces containers in high-density, high molecular weight polyethylene, using extrusion blow-moulding technology, with ultimate drum wall thickness control ensuring maximum top load strength. Containers can be standard, UN-approved for the transportation of dangerous goods or suitable for contact with food or cosmetic products. All containers are available in an infinite number of specifications and weights. For further information contact FDL Packaging Group on Tel +44 (0)1942 722299 or visit www.fdlgroup.co.uk.
