A quarter of a century in business has seen us become a leading supplier of quality packaging goods across the region and beyond, serving many industries and forming a loyal customer base through exceptional customer service.

As taken from our press release: Like many industry-leading businesses, Agritel came from humble beginnings. Established in 1997, John Duffus & Family founded the company to provide the agricultural industry with wrap and twine. However, after four successful years, the agricultural sector was hit hard by the 2001 foot and mouth crisis and saw Agritel take the strategic decision to diversify into selling industrial packaging alongside their existing offering. This move proved to be the basis of great success and has seen industrial packaging sales grow to form the majority of Agritel's turnover and provide a broad foundation for the company's continued expansion.

To celebrate Agritel’s 25th anniversary, we would like to thank all our customers by offering free delivery on orders over £100 until October 31st!

Agritel continued to take vast strides in shaping the way it worked for its customers. They boasted an ever-growing portfolio of new packaging products and waste recycling machinery, beginning with pallet wrap and pallet wrapping machines. In 2010, Agritel launched its e-commerce site – agritelonline.co.uk, at the time, a very innovative way of enabling customers to purchase packaging products quickly and easily at the lowest possible price. The site continues to grow year on year and to date still proves an extremely beneficial attribute to their business offering. This success is highlighted through Agritel's many 5 star reviews on both Google and Trust Pilot, in which customers credit the "always reliable, efficient and fast service" and "brilliant products with fantastic support."

Over the next few years, Agritel's progress continued, and by 2019, the family-run business had a new home for its team on the Gledrid Industrial Park, Chirk. This new facility offered modern offices, a welcoming base for visiting customers, and a warehouse more suitable for their ever-expanding business. Furthermore, it allowed Agritel to strengthen its position as an importer of packaging products and manage UK distribution for several notable European and International Manufacturers.

In their 25th year, Agritel is stronger than ever, and with the son of John Duffus, Rob, now at the helm, the future is bright. Rob says, "As the second generation of my family to run this business, it gives me great pride to reach our 25th year. The business continues to have the same objectives as when it was established; to offer good quality products at competitive prices whilst taking a long-term approach to customer relationships. We are fortunate to operate in a part of the country with a strong entrepreneurial spirit. We have some fantastic businesses in the region. We consider it a privilege to continue to serve many of them - their success and growth have contributed to our own. Supporting local owner-managed businesses has never been so important, and I'd like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years. We look forward to the next 25".

It's clear to see how far Agritel Packaging Supplies have come over the last 25 years, and it's this initiative the company has for development that sees them continually go way beyond simple sales growth goals. Currently, Agritel is focusing on working hard to help its customers reduce the amount of plastic packaging they are using. With the ongoing impact of excessive plastic waste on the environment and the forthcoming plastic packaging tax coming into effect in April 2022, it has never been a more critical issue for businesses. Agritel welcomes any contact from companies for whom this is a priority and would like some advice.
