Wholesale Distributors of Plastic Bottles, Caps, Jars & Accessories

Our Story

Julie and Glenn Doherty originally started their business as an acetone supplier. When changes in regulations made acetone difficult to ship, undaunted, the couple decided to seek other opportunities and listed their leftover stock of bottles and caps on eBay. Surely someone would want to buy a bottle or two?

In 2011, Julie gave up her day job to concentrate on the growing demands of their eBay shop and, following a career-changing illness in 2013, Glenn also joined the company full time, developing the product portfolio and website.

2016 saw turnover grow by 150% and the hunt was on for additional staff and warehousing!

Olivia Doherty, the couple's eldest daughter, joined the team in 2017, achieving promotion to Quality Manager by 2018. In the same year, Glenn, ever the entrepreneur, moved on to his next exciting venture.

Fast-forward to today with a worldwide client base, Julie leads the business operations with a full team dedicated to helping new and established businesses across the UK and further afield to grow and be successful.
