About Rigid Containers

With a strong and proud history of corrugated manufacturing stretching back over a century, Rigid continues to be at the forefront of technological development and supply chain management. In the UK, we operate from three state-of-the-art BRC/loP accredited, integrated manufacturing and logistics facilities in Desborough (Northamptonshire), Selby (North Yorkshire) and Wellington (Somerset). In Ireland, we operate an integrated manufacturing facility in Limerick. Our experience and understanding of market demands provides our customers with a dynamic service offering. Designing, manufacturing and stocking products to precisely suit your needs, we ensure packaging is available in the timescales you require.


Since the 1960s, Rigid has led the way in modern manufacturing principles ensuring customers not only benefit from innovation through continual investment, but also from highly cost-effective packaging solutions. Pioneering the first multi-plant corrugated operation with a central sales administration, we continue to push the boundaries of product development and service excellence - but remain lean and mean.

Staying Ahead Of Industry Demands

The market is demanding sustainable shelf-ready and transit packaging solutions - and the demand for next day and even same day delivery is growing. Our extensive warehousing allows a true Just-in-time service, thanks to the 'Stock and Serve' philosophy that we have successfully adopted. Promotional activities and innovation require support services in design, graphics and packaging technology which are dynamic and react to rapidly changing needs. As well as the service aspect, our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities are fully integrated with advanced logistics operations at all sites, ensuring our products are delivered on time, in full, every time. Our history of advanced development continues with investment in the latest RF (radio frequency) technology which delivers total control of stock management, all helping to guarantee service.

People Make The Difference

Industry skills and experience are key to a successful business and here at Rigid we are proud to be known as a true family business, retaining corrugated skills generation after generation. We also ensure skills succession every year by recruiting a number of school and college leavers from the local area, supporting local communities and ensuring our business consistently meets the highest levels of quality and service.
