Nice-Pak celebrates silver jubilee

Nice-Pak is celebrating 25 years of manufacture in Europe.

We initially imported product into the UK, prior to the opening in November 1992 of our first manufacturing operation. Since then our manufacturing capacity has grown from one production line in Flint to 30 across Europe.

Our parent company Nice-Pak Products is owned by Robert Julius, whose father, Arthur Julius, invented the world’s first disposable wet napkin in 1957 and whose first global client was fast food chain, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC). We now employ more than 900 people in Europe, across three facilities: in Flint, Wigan and Magdeburg, Germany.

In Europe alone, Nice-Pak produces more than 670m packs of wet wipes annually. In the UK we have recently opened a £40m state-of-the-art manufacturing plant, one of the most advanced of its kind in the world.

The transformation of our business over a quarter of a century is neatly captured in the contrast between these early photographs of the opening of Flint’s single production line back in 1992 by our president Robert Julius and the video below which shows our latest state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in the present day. Nice-Pak is also marking the anniversary internally over coming months.

Nice-Pak International chief executive, Michael Staton, said:

“The key to our success has been our people. They have evolved and supported our business growth and many of them have been with us for the long term. We are now embarking on the next phase of our development with further investment programmes planned in Flint and Germany, which will provide the bedrock for continued growth.”
