Our Story

Tinware Direct was founded in 2001 by Guy Grumbridge to provide businesses and individuals with a way of purchasing packaging in small quantities to bring their idea and product to market.

At the heart of our story is the simple idea that we should excel in five core areas, excellent customer service, a high-quality product that enhances the customers own product, to sell a solution, not a margin and to care about the communities and the environment we serve and operate in.

In 2023 we were awarded the prestigious King's Award for Enterprise in recognition of our achievements and sustainable development.

As a company and a team, we’re driven by the success of our customers, because after all, if you succeed, then we succeed.

Our Values


We pride ourselves on offering an unrivalled service to our customers from enquiry to delivery and beyond. We care about our customers and believe in going the extra mile to ensure packaging solutions always meet their requirements.


We work with some of the most prestigious brands in the world and we wouldn't be able to do this without ensuring the highest standards throughout the manufacturing process, from development to delivery.


We are committed to providing packaging solutions to our customers which fit their requirements, their product, and their goals. At all times we work with our customers to understand their goals and develop a solution which achieves these.


For our customers to be successful, we understand that packaging needs to enhance the product, add value in the eye of consumers, provide recognition on the shelf and be aesthetically pleasing.


We only source products from suppliers who meet the highest ethical, social, and environmental standards. At all times we aim to reduce our environmental impact by utilising recycled, safe and sustainable materials in our products and introducing environmental policies within our processes.
