The history of Saxon Packaging is certainly a long one, having established ourselves in 1986 we have over 30 years experience in the packaging industry. We have only been able to achieve this longevity by continually growing as a company, updating our equipment and premises, and improving our service offering to our customers.

In 1986 we began in just one unit with three members of staff, one die-cutting machine and a press machine. We made samples boxes by hand and relied heavily on one customer; we have come a long way since.
