Waddington Europe

the next generation of thermoforming pioneers

Who are we?

Waddington Europe is the European division of Waddington North America.

We have three production sites located in Milton Keynes and Bridgwater (UK), Arklow (Ireland) as well as our eco-friendly packaging company Eureka Caterware based in the Netherlands.

Why we are different

We are a vertically integrated company, which means we can provide our customers with a complete end-to-end packaging supply service that includes:

In-house design

Our in-house design team work hard to bring innovation and new product solutions to market.

Whether it’s working one to one with customers on bespoke projects, or finding ways to make standard products better, our strong lines of communication, quick prototype and sample turnaround and tighter quality control checks enable us to keep the philosophy behind your concept at the forefront of the design and production stages.

Quite simply our flexible, agile vertical approach enables us to have full control from design to supply and gives you, our customer, more bang for your buck.

In-house extrusion

We have in-house sheet extrusion at both our Bridgwater and Arklow sites with facilities to produce PET, Laminates and PP and are constantly investing and improving our extrusion lines to increase efficiency and productivity.

Our plastic extrusion capabilities mean that we can manufacture at speed and high volume with minimal wastage. We can produce varying thickness, textures and colours with a wide scope of shapes and sizes at a higher degree of cost efficiency.

In-house tooling

We can support all our sites with in-house tooling manufacture, which means our customers enjoy shorter lead-times, reduced costs, quality assurance, and easy customisations.

Our history

Waddington Europe has evolved from a number of business acquisitions over the last seven years.

The Waddington Group acquired ParPak in 2013, subsequently acquiring Holfield Plastics, Deltaform and Eureka Caterware over the next five years to operate under the Par-Pak brand.

The whole Waddington Group was then sold to Jarden in early 2016, which were then bought out by Newell Brands later that same year.

In 2018 Newell Brands sold The Waddington Group to Novolex.

Today Waddington Europe is a thermoforming specialist brand and proud to be part of the wider Novolex family of packaging brands.
