Our One to Watch: FDL Packaging Group


Banging the drums for Haydock!

Our latest One to Watch has a golden feel, as Haydock’s FDL Packaging Group is celebrating its 50th anniversary…

Established as Fibre Drums Ltd in 1969, the same year as the Moon landings, Woodstock and Concorde’s first test flight, FDL clearly keep good birthday company – as well as being a leading industrial packaging manufacturer and distributor!

Rolling out its first fibre drums in 1970 and beginning general packaging distribution in 1984, it’s a company with great heritage and a fabulous ethos too, producing environmentally friendly alternatives to more expensive steel and plastic drums.

We’re delighted to have known and worked with the company’s financial director Clive Atherton, for over 20 years.

“When it comes to sourcing, supplying and financing vehicles for the business, I couldn’t ask anything more from Whittle Hall Finance. The reliable, friendly, personal service is precisely what we need. Nothing’s too much trouble for them, which is perfectly aligned to how we serve our clients too.”

Thanks for your kind words Clive, and here’s to the next 50!
