About Us

Packability is a trading division of Welsh Boxes Co Ltd.

Welsh Boxes Company Limited was formed in 1937 by one Lillian Jenkins (formerly Lillian Rees).

Mrs L Jenkins was appointed Managing Director of the company and set the foundations for where it is today.

Welsh Boxes Company Ltd was set up in Carmarthen Road - Greenhill, Swansea. The company began by making solid board boxes and selling paper products such as paper bags, paper rolls, kraft rolls and greaseproof paper amongst others. There was no machinery in the business at the time and so everything was made by hand.

Nearing 1940 the Directors were told what they had to do for the war effort and that they were required to use their knowledge and tools to make ammunition and rocket boxes. In order to do this the company needed a much larger site. This resulted in the purchase of Low Level Landore - Glandwr Works. This is roughly where the Liberty Stadium stands today. 

Having nothing but their own knowledge and tools the building was converted by hand into what was a 'modern factory' in that day.

After the war Lillian and Harry decided to carry on as a steel fabrication company in order to maintain business, staff and to employ those men returning from war.

Eventually they sold this part of the business and in 1962 all cardboard and Paper Machinery moved to Fforestfach trading Estate where we stand today.

Today Welsh Boxes & Engineering Company Ltd is one of the UK's leading manufacturers of conventional, heavy duty and corrugated packaging. Supplying protective packaging, stretch and shrink films, wrapping papers, bagging, postal products, tapes, dispensers and boxes; there really is something for everyone.
