Established in 1980, to supply plastic packaging to the cosmetics industry, Holfeld Plastics Ltd has grown to be a leading plastic Extrusion and Thermoforming company both in the British Isles and continental Europe.
The company undertook a major development in the late 1980?s when it moved to a purpose built Extrusion and Vacuum forming facilities at Kilmacanogue, Co. Wicklow, Ireland. Since that move the company has built three additional factories on the same site covering in excess of 100,000 square feet. Quality always a watchword at Holfeld Plastics Ltd, was relentlessly followed during the expansion period and resulted in the company being awarded ISO 9002 certification in 1992.
Heavily involved in the poultry, meat, fish, fruit, chilled produce and ready meal sectors, Holfeld?s have risen to the challenges presented by this challenging market sector. Holfeld invested in new materials better suited to the emerging controlled atmospheric packaging (CAP) and modified atmospheric packaging (MAP) packaging solutions. The use of Gas flushing and heat sealing requirements of it?s customers meant a review of manufacturing techniques to ensure that both sheet and trays produced by the company would perform adequately under these packaging methodologies.
