Key members of the East Riding Sacks family

Robert Mabbett

Managing Director

Robert started his career with the group in its recovered paper division in 1967, which is still operated by the company today. He moved to the paper sack division when it commenced production of paper sacks in 1968. He became Managing Director of the company some 30 years ago and have overseen its growth since then.

Since it was formed, the paper sack division has continuously invested in land, buildings and machinery to become the leading paper sack producer in the UK, with an annual capacity of 140 million sacks. Robert’s passion is to produce the highest possible quality sacks from environmentally friendly and sustainable forests and to deliver them on time to our customers.

The Company can offer a wealth of experience to our customers, from sourcing the best raw materials available, producing them with staff who have a vast production knowledge on modern sack printers and production lines, and delivering them on our own modern transport fleet.  Our work is enhanced by our accreditations to quality, environmental and product safety.
