What does Sirane do?

Sirane is an NPD product and process development company with full manufacturing capabilities covering the food, medical, horticultural and industrial business sectors. We specialise in turning “drawing-board” ideas into real products that work. In our product design department a team of technicians and scientists are hungry for your ideas. Our core areas are absorbency; bags, pouches & films, and board products. We have a high level of expertise in material science.

In absorbent products, what sizes/colours are available?

This depends on the product. If it`s Dri-Fresh then we can offer virtually any size from 30 x 30mm to 600 x 10,000mm, plus shapes and discs and also any colour you wish. Our standard range is white, blue, black, dark and light green, cream, ivory, pink, indigo, orange, burgundy, red and yellow. But as I said before, you choose the colour and we will match it! Lead times for non-standard colour matching are 14-21 days.

In the rest of the product range, let us know what it is you need and I`m sure we can help you.

What absorbencies do you offer?

Standard absorbencies range from 600 to 40,000ml/gsm. The intermediary references are 800, 1500, 1700, 2500, 3000, 4000, 5000, 8000, 10,000, 15,000 and 30,000 and higher depending on the product and application you need. One specialist requirement was for 60,000 which we successfully produced.

What sort of bags & pouches do you manufacture?

We manufacture a wide range of bags and pouches. These include plastic-free pouches, retort pouches, stand-up pouches, quad-seal pouches, flat-pouches, thermally-insulated bags and pockets, trolley-bags, steam-cooking bags, oven/BBQ bags, nylon roasting bags, 95 kPA specimen transport bags and more.

What is Earth Packaging?

Sirane has always catered for companies looking for environmentally-friendly packaging – compostable absorbent pads, for example, have been part of our range for many years. As our range grew – particularly with the development of the award-winning plastic-free Earthpouch – we decided to place our sustainable packaging solutions under one umbrella brand, and the term Earth Packaging was coined. Everything in this range is either compostable or easily recyclable – and by that we mean the vast majority of people can put it in with the kerb-side recycling.

Is everything you make produced in Telford?

Most of our orders are fulfilled from the UK either from our main HQ in Telford, Shropshire (we have two sites on Stafford Park, Telford and a third in Halesfield, Telford). We also have manufacturing facilities in Mexico and the Czech Republic – so if you deal with either Sirane Central America or Sirane CEE your products may be made locally. As we develop into a truly international company, we are committed to offering the same type of lead times for overseas customers as those enjoyed by our core UK base.

Are you BRC accredited?

Yes we are. This was one of the first things we did when we started up, because we believe that without this you cannot be considered a credible and reliable supplier. All overseas Sirane plants meet the desired standards as required in their respective countries.

Are you ISO accredited?

We have both ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016 (Medical Devices) accreditation.

So can you offer medical kit building?

Yes, because we have ISO 13485:2016 (Medical Devices) in place, we can offer kit building. We are also the primary manufacturer of many of the components needed, meaning we don’t need to rely on others. We have also invested significant amounts in the necessary software needed to offer fulfilment. We’re also members of the BCMPA.

What makes you different from your competitors?

We are a truly unique company simply because of the team of people that we have here. With our core skills being science, design and engineering, we have been able to develop solutions where there simply wasn’t any before. We have a huge toolbox of materials and skills to pull on and therefore are best positioned to provide the correct solution for the job. We look at an idea and if it’s possible we will do it. If the material isn’t available, we will develop it. If there isn’t a machine available to make the product, we will design and build it. We then back this up with scientific testing and documentation and then with a solid customer support system to ensure all our customers get the first class service we expect them to get.

Are you members of the BCMPA?

Yes, Sirane offers co-packing an fulfilment and we are accredited members of the British Contract Manufacturers & Packers Association (BCMPA)

Where do you exhibit?

We exhibit in many of the main trade shows akin to our industry. These have included Aneberries, AusPack, Boston Seafood, FachPack, Fish International, FoodEx, Fruit Logistica, Gulfood, IFE, IFE in South Africa, IFFA, IPPE, Medica, Packaging Innovations (Birmingham, London & Madrid), PLMA, RosUpack and Seafood Global.

What are your plans for the future?

We intend to build on what we have created so far by continuing to innovate and develop new products for our customers. We are expanding our product portfolio throughout our business sectors.

We moved into a purpose built new factory in March 2008 – We then extended the factory size to a sizeable 70,000 square feet which ensured we can produce virtually any of our products direct from raw stock in a timely fashion. When you get let down by a supplier, then come to us and we will do our utmost to help.

In 2013 we opened a manufacturing facility in Antalya, Turkey, as well as warehousing in Cape Town, South Africa, and offices in Dubai. 2013 also saw the addition of a number of distributors/agents around the world.

Early 2014 saw Sirane begin to make large inroads into the United States – and the foundation of Sirane North America Inc. We also opened Sirane Asia-Pacific in Singapore, with ambitious plans to supply into the large South East Asia market.

January 2016 will see Sirane open a third manufacturing facility, when Sirane Mexico opens in Guadalajara, in the heart of the berry-growing region. Sirane Mexico will mean the growers in what is one of Mexico’s biggest industries will have a packaging manufacturer based locally and able to supply direct.

In May 2018 Sirane acquired B&G Products, a flexible packaging manufacturer based in Staffordshire. 2018 also saw Sirane take over an adjacent site in Telford, increasing manufacturing space to more than 100,000 square feet.

In February 2020 Sirane acquired Olympic Varnish, a manufacturer and converter of food grade board products based in Stroud, Gloucestershire. We also acquired an additional unit on Stafford Park, Telford, adding an additional 32,000 square feet of manufacturing space. We now have around 140,000 square feet in Telford.

In November 2020 Sirane acquired the oven-bags and films business of Terinex, further strengthening our positition as the number 1 global supplier of ovenable packaging.

And in February 2022 we acquired a new home for our innovative board division and more, with the addition of a new 40,000 sq ft manufacturing space in Halesfield, Telford.
