About the employer

In 1935 Ronald Chadwick began work as a general supplier to the farming community around Bury. He offered them everything they needed for their business – eventually including foil tops to cover bottles of milk filled on local farms. A punching machine was bought to produce the metal lids quickly and easily and, unwittingly, Ronald Chadwick began our journey as the world’s leading producer of pre-cut lids.

Our development has been built on a belief in taking progressive steps, reinforcing our reputation for innovation and high standards. In 2009 we invested in shrink sleeves technology to expand our offer even further and began the next chapter in our story – from the humble milk bottle top to the latest in shrink sleeves, the history of Chadwicks continues to evolve.

“We are now at the forefront of developing more environmentally friendly lidding products including RPET lids with 30% recycled content and offering “lightweighting” in the form of a 36 micron base film reducing film consumption by 28% from the standard 50 micon gauge.
