From Bombers, Bakers, Blue Peter and onto gourmet Burgers!
The company started in 1942 by an ex RAF pilot in Cheltenham called Leonard Stace, he developed rubber coated cloth to make self seal & bullet proof linings for aircraft fuel tanks, and supplied them to the government during the war.
The business moved to its current location in The Vineyards in 1952 around the time silicones were being introduced for release purposes and Mr Stace started making coated vegetable parchments for bakery tray liners
In the early 1960’s release coated silicones were being developed for use against pressure sensitive adhesives and Mr Stace started making release coated papers suitable for producing self adhesive laminates such as Fablon (sticky back plastic, loved by the BBC’s Blue Peter programme)
Since then the company has not stood still and now supplies a wide range of products ranging from highly specialist products for the medical sector through to printed greaseproof paper to wrap gourmet burgers.
