About Us

We at Packaging Chimp pride ourselves on the level of customer service we provide. We are committed to making your experience with us as happy as possible.

Our market has turned into a real Packaging Jungle with so many options available to fight this challenge we have created Chip our Chimp to show you how Packaging Chimp, our on line shop brings together the best solution

for our customers underpinned by our reputation for trust, quality and fantastic customer service.  We simply offer our customers the best products, at the best price, simply and efficiently. 

Fully owned by Initial Packaging who went into business on 26th September 1983, over a brew and an idea that “we can do that”.  From the humble beginnings of a small unit in the North West selling  polythene bags to local customer they have now formed one of the largest independent manufacturers of polythene bags.  Since that day in 1983 Initial has grown quite a bit – we now make bags for many difference markets ranging from security to mail order, and we work with household names we all know and love. But the basic idea remains the same: to create value for money, innovative packaging and never stint on quality.

With a lot of hard work and determination all these years later we still believe it was a great idea. In the eighties we were the first company to manufacture and supply a polythene mail order bag with a peel and seal closure for a well known catalogue company.  In the nineties we were awarded a contract to supply mailing and courier bags to the Royal Mail and Post Office and I’m delighted to say that we are still providing these products. We are the only packaging company to ever be awarded the prestigious Post Office Supplier of the Year award.  In the noughties we designed and manufactured a multi trip polythene security bag for one of the largest Cash in Transit Companies in the Europe and in 2012 the year of Olympic glory in the UK, we provided the packaging for the transportation of first day stamps of both the Olympic and Para Olympic Gold medal winners. Our important contribution was acknowledged by Royal Mail with the presentation of a full set of stamps of all our Olympic Gold medal winners, something we are extremely proud of.

We want to work with you to make sure you get exactly what you want. If you need a bit more personalisation on your product or demand something a little different to what is online we are happy to listen to your needs and work with you to ensure you get the ideal packaging solution.

Packaging Chimp can also offer you help with design and bespoke solutions so you can see your way through the Packaging jungle and get the product which really does tick all your boxes (and bags).
