Founded in Barnsley, South Yorkshire in 1985, Yorkshire Repak was specifically created to cater for the growing secondary inspection demands of the UK Glass Container Industry. Former Quality Assurance Manager at Rockware Glass, Terry Foy joined our team as Director and General Manager with the specific aim to develop both glass and associated business opportunities. In December 2015, a Management buy-out took place, spearheaded by Terry, to take the company to a new dimension. Continued ‘Customer Focus’ remains key to the new management team.
Over the progress of time, we’ve established Yorkshire Repak as the leader of skilled labour provision to our UK customers, covering short and longer term staff shortages. More recently our Duty Suspense Rework Centre in St Helens, which in addition to empty glass reworking, has developed a first class reputation for the reworking and repacking of filled product. Our pre-labelling facility for both glass containers and PET bottles is used by all the glass manufacturers and fillers and also provides both staff and technical operatives.
European operations are expanding where we regularly supply production line/quality staff to our overseas customers, who operate their onsite rework facilities and assist in production when staff shortages exist.
