The origins of TPI for Packaging can be traced back many years, starting we believe with the Robson Rope company based on Robson Street in Hanley Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire. In this picture from around 1957, the entrance to the rope works is marked by number 7. From this family business, Trent Paper Importers were subsequently formed and as this business grew and moved into extruding and converting polythene, along with the supply of a more diverse range of packaging products, the initials were used as the new name for the business: TPI for Packaging Ltd. For those who are interested, the other numbered buildings from 1957 are:

  1. Victoria Hotel
  2. Allcocks Confectioners
  3. Gomersalls Pawnbrokers
  4. Finneys Drapers
  5. Ashworths Pottery
  6. Black Lion Pub
  7. Robsons Ropery
  8. Alcock, Lindley & Bloore Pottery
  9. Rising Sun Pub
Today TPI for Packaging continues to be run by a knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly team who focus on providing the best service to all our customers.

From our 5,000 square foot facility we provide a same day/next day service for a complete range of packaging materials in and around the Staffordshire area using our own delivery service.

Nationwide deliveries are provided by our long term transport partners and we aim to provide the same levels of quality, service and reliability whether you are on our doorstep or further afield. Our new web site provides an overview of our product range and includes a click and collect service for local purchasers who wish to reserve items for collection from our sales counter.

For customers throughout the U.K. wanting to purchase selected products via the internet, our on line shop provides a quick and easy method where card payments can be made securely on line or by telephone.
