About Us

we use specialist packaging materials and work to set
environmental standards other packaging companies aspire to

The trading history of Suttons Performance Packaging began in the modest facilities of the Harlow-based workshop of Mr Albert Edward Sutton in 1962. As then, A E Sutton Ltd remains the registered company name and we are proud to have Simon Sutton, Albert's grandson, as the current Managing Director. Simon recently managed the transition from our old premises in Chatteris, to our new purpose-built manufacturing and head-office site on the fittingly named Albert Way.

Over five decades of great change in production processes, materials and technologies, our total packaging solutions expertise and family values have gone hand-in-hand to earn us the reputation we cherish today.

Our ISO 9001 accreditation and Star Pack Awards are testament to the personal commitment we give to managing ourselves whilst designing and producing 'unequalled solutions for packaging and transportation' for our many valued clients.

…a sustainable approach to tomorrow's challenges

As an environmentally responsible business we maintain operational practices which help safeguard the environment. All raw materials used in our manufacturing processes are fully recyclable and 90% of our production waste enters the recycling chain.
