From small beginnings

Roberts was originally known as The Roberts Capsule Stopper Company Limited and was founded in 1887. After gaining a strong reputation as cork traders, Roberts then expanded into the manufacture of cork stoppers before adding pressed metal decorative tops to their service offering. As the popularity of cork gave way to pre-threaded metal caps in aluminium and tinplate, Roberts was ideally positioned to become market leaders, and swiftly became the first choice for manufacturers throughout the UK.

Roberts remains Europe’s premier manufacturer of pre-threaded metal caps and aluminium jars and containers. Our clients range from global cosmetics, healthcare and food companies through to independent manufacturers of home and leisure products.

Skill, experience and understanding; three qualities that have made Roberts the award-winning metal packaging provider it is today.

Roberts metal packaging is certified to the BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials – Grade A, ISO:9001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018  and as such is committed to the highest levels of Quality, Health and Safety and Hygiene management.
