About Us


1994-2019....a success story in the making over 25 years!

Founded in 1994 by Colin Fletcher, Fletcher European Containers Ltd is a leading British company involved in the rotational moulding plastics process, manufacturing our own brand of 'rotoX' material handling products for the food industry. From small and humble beginnings, we now supply a very wide range of commercial industries, but are probably best known within the food manufacturing, bakery and catering industry where our unique product range has been designed to meet the specific and challenging demands associated with 24 hours a day / 7 days a week commercial food production and distribution. Therefore, many of our products feature a hygienic design, excellent durability, food contact compliance and can be supplied in a choice of colour options to enable our customers to segregate foodstuffs and maximise the use of colour coding within their businesses.

In 2010, we acquired Hygiplas, an established company, founded in 1978. This allowed us to strengthen our position in the UK bakery market. In 2014, the company then invested in a large factory extension and installed new rotational moulding equipment, which enabled us to substantially increase our production capability and hold more stock for our customers. In 2017, we were proud to achieve the ISO9001:2015 accreditation, rubber stamping our commitment to quality, customer satisfaction and continuous improvement. We also have our own 'in-house' granulating and recycling programme to ensure we recycle all our plastic waste and remain a green and environmentally friendly company.




Fletcher European reached a landmark in 2019 with 25 years in business. This is testament to all the hard work put in by staff to engage with our customers over the years and to ensure we remain a strong business supplying the food manufacturing, catering and bakery market sectors. The business is still owned by its' founder, Colin Fletcher, who remains very passionate about the business and is actively involved in the day to day running of the company as the current Managing Director.
