Supporting Innovation – Supporting Growth
James Brown
Managing Director



Expac is a family-owned business established by Brian Langtree (1st Generation) in November 1980. From its early beginnings as a contract packer to the retail trade, specialising in gift-packing. The company has evolved to focus upon the manufacture of household and toiletry liquids and powders – in bottles, tubes, jars & bags – it can go into anything you wish.
We are a traditional, British manufacturer with a reputation for flexibility, quality and outstanding service, complimented with a very special personal touch.

In October 2016 GRI Group acquired the share capital of Expac. Expac, now a 100% subsidiary of GRI Expac Ltd, will benefit substantially from being a GRI Group associate company, which will deliver even greater opportunities for Expac’s Customers, suppliers and staff.

The focus of Expac’s team will continue to be on our customers, the quality of our products and the manufacturing and technical services we provide. The benefits from the group will overlay this to add yet further value to the business, such as wider commercial connections, enhanced financial strength, significant investment in product and manufacturing technology, infrastructure and people, together with synergy opportunities related to Expac’s new sister companies, Libra Speciality Chemicals and I Love Cosmetics.
