Who We Are

ABSORBENCY, board and flexible packaging. Manufacturing. NPD. Packaging development. Fulfilment. Sirane can be a difficult company to sum up at times.

We mainly operate in three specialist areas: absorbency; bags, pouches & films (flexible packaging), and board products – selling into four main sectors: food packaging; medical & healthcare; lab supplies & services, and horticultural.

ABSORBENCY – absorbent pads are one of our core products. Whether it’s compostable or recyclable, ovenable or odour-absorbing, we have a huge range of capabilities. When it comes to absorbency, we’re the European market leaders, possibly even the world.

FLEXIBLE PACKAGING – flow-wrap films and pouches of all types. We have three in-house printing presses (two Flexo water-based presses and a digital printing press). Whether it is recyclable plastics or plastic-free, quad-seal or retort, we have got you covered. We are at the forefront of plastic-free flexibles, with our range including paper-based barrier films.

BOARD – board-based packaging including cake/salmon boards, U-cards and J-cards, susceptor, SRPs, FSDUs and more. We’re pioneers in our use of coated boards as a plastic replacement. Our range includes plastic-free sustainable tree-shelters.

We also offer a co-packing & fulfilment service (Sira-Pack) as well as medical kit-building and fulfilment services (we are also experts in compliant UN3373 packaging).

Sirane’s headquarters are in Telford, Shropshire, UK – conveniently located close to the M54 if you’re paying us a visit! The company was founded by in 2003 with the simple objective of providing a new pace of innovation and level of service to the packaging industry. Co-founder Simon Balderson is still managing director to this day.

Sirane now has manufacturing facilities in the UK at three sites – all in Telford, Shropshire (known as Emerald, Amethyst and Pioneer) – and overseas in the Czech Republic (Hranice), United States (Grand Prairie, Texas) and Mexico (Guadalajara) as well as offices/representation in the UK, Australia, Czech Republic, Mexico, US & South Africa.

We also have a wide network of agents and distributors who are here to help.

NPD is also an important feature of Sirane – whereas most companies are manufacturing operations supplying a range of products, Sirane can also look at your requirement and design and develops a solution that does the job, based on your requirements. No more or no less!

Sirane’s core skills are founded around material science and design & process engineering which gives us the capability to develop new and better products and if required, new manufacturing machinery to produce these products too! All at a pace unheard of before. Absorbency and absorbent pads, oven/microwave-ready packaging materials, bags & pouches (flexibles), sustainable packaging, plastic replacement, boards and shelf-life extending packaging are just some of the areas in which we excel.

We back this up with full product testing & certification to ensure you have the best and most importantly, the safest product on the market. With over 100 years of combined knowledge in this sector, you can be sure we have the right answers.
