A quarter of a century in business has seen Agritel Packaging Supplies become a leading supplier of quality packaging goods across the region and beyond, serving many industries and forming a loyal customer base through exceptional customer service.
Agritel came from humble beginnings. Established in 1997, John Duffus & Family founded the company to provide the agricultural industry with wrap and twine. In 2001, the foot and mouth crisis saw Agritel take the strategic decision to diversify into selling industrial packaging alongside their existing offering.
The new e-commerce site launched in 2010 – agritelonline.co.uk, enabling customers to purchase packaging products quickly and easily at the lowest possible price. The site’s success is highlighted through Agritel’s many 5-star reviews on Google and Trust Pilot. Customers credit the “always reliable, efficient and fast service” and “brilliant products with fantastic support.”
With the son of John Duffus, Rob, now at the helm, the future is bright. Rob says, “As the second generation of my family to run this business, it gives me great pride to reach our 25th year. The business continues to have the same objectives as when it was established; to offer good quality products at competitive prices whilst taking a long-term approach to customer relationships. We are fortunate to operate in a part of the country with a strong entrepreneurial spirit. We have some fantastic businesses in the region. Supporting local owner-managed businesses has never been so important, and I’d like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years. We look forward to the next 25.”
Currently, Agritel is working hard to help its customers reduce the amount of plastic packaging they are using. With the forthcoming plastic packaging tax coming into effect in April 2022, it has never been a more critical issue for businesses. Agritel welcomes any contact from companies for whom this is a priority and would like some advice.
