Polybags was established in 1961 by Mr Geoffrey Davies who purchased a bag making machine advertised in the local paper and sold door to door. As sales grew, Geoffrey Davies teamed up with college friend Brian Turner who became in charge of production and the business moved firstly to a lock-up garage and then on to larger factory premises in Alperton, West London.

After some consolidation, Polybags now has a new management team headed by Jon Lomax and are looking to continue the company development and success.
