Moore & Buckle was formed in 1981, by founders Mike Moore and Barry Buckle, following them being made redundant from national packaging company, Metal Box, after it closed its Merseyside site. Because of the closure Mike and Barry were able to purchase some of the redundant machines from Metal Box, acquired premises in St Helens and Moore & Buckle Flexible Packaging Ltd was created. Bruce Pritchard also a former Metal Box employee joined them a few years later and bringing his expert technical knowledge with him.
Mike and Barry have both since retired and current Managing Director, Derek Hewitt was brought on in 2004 to help Bruce with the running of the company. It was at this time that we also moved in to our current premises on Sutton Fold, St Helens, Merseyside.
There is a real family feel within the team and many of our staff have been with us for years. Paul, Sue, John & Tom have amassed over 130 years of experience with Moore & Buckle between them, impressive!!!
