Britton Group

In 1998, CVC Funds invested in Britton Group, a leading manufacturer and marketer of printed plastic film products for a wide range of packaging applications.

The Britton Group ranks as one of the top ten film manufacturers in Europe with multiple sites producing 90,000 tonnes of plain, printed and converted polyethylene films each year for a wide selection of retail, industrial and blue-chip customers. The group also offers professional advice on all print design requirements and is a market leader in security and track and trace features, including sequential numbering, bar coding, speciality inks, RFID and tamper resistant closure systems.

The group’s research into lightweight, yet strong, flexible packaging materials, coupled with investment in the latest technology have provided new developments which so far have had a far-ranging impact on the market.
