Founded in 1974, and previously known as G.R & J. Atkinson and Atkinson Containers, PurePac continues to be a family run and owned business.  Something we are extremely proud of.

In the early days, the business dealt purely in the reconditioning and recycling of steel drums.  We soon added plastic containers of various shapes and sizes to the product portfolio.  We were in fact, one of the first companies some 30 years ago, to start reconditioning IBC Tanks.

With over 300 regular customers in the food & drinks, perfumery, pharma, and chemical industries, some of whom have been with us from the very start. PurePac has organically grown from strength to strength.

Until March 2024, PurePac had no dedicated sales force, and the vast majority of our custom had come from recommendations, and our reputation for high quality products and excellent customer service.  We don’t believe in Sales Manager roles, as such we have now appointed a Customer Relationship Manager.  Our CRM Manager is here to create and build relationships, someone who looks after our customer accounts, providing product and pricing information as well as technical and general support.

We have seen many industry changes over the last 50 years; manufacturing moving overseas, increasing exports and changes in packaging and recycling legislation.  At PurePac, we pride ourselves on having the ability to quickly adapt to these changing circumstances, and to continuously offer our customers the right products and services for their requirements – at the right price.
