History

Jiffy’s founders, the Baldwin family, started business as manufacturers of wood wool in Birmingham in 1896 before expanding to Manchester in 1926.

Jiffy Packaging Company Ltd was established in 1964 to manufacture the Jiffy Padded Bag® from a base in Winsford, Cheshire.

During the subsequent years the product range was added to substantially, starting with Jiffy Rugated Products, a range of embossed laminated paper protective packaging materials, in 1968.

In 1975, J. & W. Baldwin (Holdings) Company Ltd phased out wood wool and concentrated on distributing packaging materials produced by Jiffy. This was followed by Jiffy introducing the first non-cross linked closed cell low density polyethylene foam sheet production and higher density plank sheets. The bubble lined bag, Mailmiser®, was also added at this stage. The investment continued with the installation of bubble film extruders during the 1990s.

At the UK Head Office in Winsford, Jiffy manufactures bubble film, bubble lined mailers, Padded Bags, sheet foam, technical foams, and offers a range of converted bubble and foam products.
