PMC Bags Up 25 Years of Success


Polythene bag manufacturer, PMC Polythene Ltd, is celebrating this month after achieving an impressive 25 years in the business. The company was established in 1989 by school friends Colin George and Peter Garrett, who were joined by business associate, Martyn Stimpson. Later, Mark Richman, who has now been with the company for over 20 years, became the fourth Director. Peter has since retired from the business and now the trio are looking to build on their success with a new, purpose-built facility.


The company first began operating with one small bag making machine out of an old farm building in Fowlmere, Hertfordshire, before swiftly moving into a 2,000ft2


unit in Buntingford in 1991. In the


following decade, the business steadily increased to occupy more adjacent units and increase the number and type of bag making machines on offer. PMC Polythene is a proud founder member of the Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association refuse sack standard, ensuring clear and accurate descriptions and labelling of products. CHSA products use a scale that refers to a bag’s maximum weight load rather than reference to thickness.


In 2002, with the ever increasing demand for more cost-effective, high-strength bags, the company started importing from the Far East whilst leaving its UK operation to focus on manufacturing its core range and bespoke products. This was followed in 2007 by the introduction of PMC’s BIOSAC® range as customers began to build sustainable policies into their waste disposal activity.


With a solid foundation based on long-serving staff, PMC are now looking to the future with early plans in place to develop a facility on a new industrial estate in Royston.


The new facility is expected to help the company continue to offer good quality products at a competitive price as PMC look to secure success for the next 25 years.
