Our History

Fibre Drums Ltd. was established in 1969 and produced its first drums in 1970.

Over the following 15 years the company proceeded to grow until its relocation to its current Haydock facility. It was here that FDL Packaging was created and the distribution business was born.

The company continued to operate as a leading manufacturer of specialist packaging materials and in 2003 FDL Packaging acquired Cases For Industry, thus creating today's FDL Packaging Group.

In recent years the group companies have invested heavily to reduce manufacturing costs, increase quality and extend its range of products. Operating from a modern and well equipped factory, FDL Packaging Group is located just a few minutes from the M6 motorway.
