About RPC M&H Plastics

RPC M&H Plastics is the premier supplier of plastic packaging specializing in the production and decoration of high-quality plastic bottles, jars, containers, flexible tubes and closures. The company operates in markets such as personal care, pharmaceutical, nutrition and household products where quality and style are critical.

Founded in 1973, the company has grown to be one of Europe’s leading plastic manufacturers. In the UK the company employs over 600 people running the latest machinery and equipment providing unrivalled expertise which sets the benchmark in design and manufacturing. Virtually everything is conducted in-house, on site from concept design through to toolmaking to production, artwork and decoration.

The company has also expanded into the USA with state-of-the art facilities working to the same exacting standards and business philosophy as the UK.

The company offers nearly 5,000 standard products, together with a design and innovation-led philosophy that sees an additional 90-100 new standards being released each year. In addition, a custom moulding service of exclusive designs is also offered.

RPC M&H Plastics prides itself on its flexibility and service orientation, and provides a truly one-stop total packaging solution from concept to completion.

Our core objective is to provide excellent quality and service at competitive prices. We place great emphasis not only on what we achieve but also how we deliver it. We help our employees work effectively in their role and help them deal with new challenges.

We are committed to rewarding, developing and retaining talent and there is a range of resources available to help individuals determine and meet their development needs.

In December 2013 RPC M&H Plastics became part of the RPC Group. RPC was established in 1991 following the management buyout of the plastic operations of Reedpack Ltd from SCA. Originally comprising five UK factories, the company today has over 55 operations in 19 countries and employs more than 11,100 people, with annual sales in excess of £1bn. It was listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1993 and entered the FTSE 250 in March 2011.
