About Us

What’s in a name – flexible packaging? Well, we think it’s the clue to our success at Moore and Buckle.Over 41 years we have built a package of expert skills and knowledge which today makes us the go-to company in our sector.

And we have remained flexible, adapting to meet customer needs great and small. We can provide a production run of one up to a million or more, with no minimum order quantity required.

We have the R and D capacity to prevent a seed germinating in a pouch for 25 years and the technical skills to recover your damaged reel of expensive laminate. We do this and much more, from pouch conversion and laminating to reel slitting and die cutting. If you have a packaging challenge, our team will find a solution.We like being tested.

Safety matters at Moore and Buckle. All our manufacturing adheres to the British Retail Consortium’s HACCP guidelines ensuring the safety of products being sold. We hold the BRC’s AA rating for Food Safety, the highest grade possible. We’ve also incorporated the Pharmaceutical standard PS9000:2011 for all activities at our production centre in St.Helens, in the North West of the UK.

And we enjoy sharing our knowledge. If flexible packaging is a foreign language to you, but you think your new product might benefit from it, there’s no better place to start your learning journey than at Moore and Buckle. Customers ask us questions every day, and we keep coming up with the answers. That’s one reason why they see us as partners, not simply suppliers.

We’re Moore and Buckle – proud of our UK manufacturing heritage. Always striving for excellence. Totally committed to our customers.

Meet the Team

Moore and Buckle was founded in 1981 and we are very proud of our UK manufacturing heritage, and the reputation we have built for customer service and quality.

Much of the secret of our success is down to the skilled team we have grown at M&B. Many of our staff have been with the company a long time. For example, Paul, Sue, John & Tom have amassed over 130 years of experience at Moore & Buckle between them!

Such dedication provides us with an unmatched wealth of experience and knowledge – and gives the company a true family feel. We all work together to please our customers and provide a first class service and products. That’s the M&B way.
