About Us

We are a second generation family company who have been supplying shrink wrap machines and shrink film since 1977. David Johnson is our Founder and Chairman whilst his son Glyn is Managing Director and his daughter Rachel is Operations Director. Over our more than forty year history, we’ve grown to become the UK’s leading distributor – with that comes unrivalled expertise.

Our West Yorkshire location means we are perfectly situated to supply our entire range to any part of the UK and Ireland. Our customers are based far and wide, including the Shetland Isles and even Jersey.

As specialists in shrink wrapping, we supply all types of equipment. Our products range from simple manual L sealers to fully automatic, high speed, heavy duty, and stainless steel sleeve wrappers aimed primarily at the dairy industry. We can also supply wide shrink wrapping equipment for large items like doors or furniture.

We understand the importance of varied, tailored solutions to ensure absolute quality in both transit and display packaging and have built a reputation for the highest standards of equipment quality and after-care support.

Meet The Team

Designed, sealed, delivered – YPS solutions

As we have been supplying shrink wrapping solutions to a wide range of U.K. industries for over four decades, we have earned an enviable reputation as leaders in our industry, offering high quality, robust and reliable products accompanied with exceptional backup and support. As a result we have a wealth of knowledge, experience and a large portfolio of customer references, which is evidenced in our case studies and testimonials.

We are unique in our ‘systems’ approach whereby we aim to supply a total packaging solution. We work hard to understand our customers needs and deliver a tailor-made package that can be fully customised according to their exact requirements. Following the supply of machinery, we support the packaging operation with the supply of spare parts, engineering assistance and an included service contract.

To complement our machine range we are proud to be the exclusive UK distributors for Bollore high performance polyolefin shrink film, which we offer on a next day delivery basis. We also offer a world-first, bio-based plastic film as we are aware that the demand for eco-friendly packaging is ever increasing. We also have many different types of shrink wrap plastic available specifically designed for modified atmosphere packaging and for food packaging.

Thinking ahead with YPS…

As we offer a total solution service to our customers, we find that supplying the machine is just the beginning of the relationship. More often than not, we supply the shrink film that works with the machine and as most of our customers require their machine to operate at optimum efficiency at all times, they take advantage of our regular servicing and preventative maintenance contracts. To ensure that heat sealing machines are always working efficiently, our servicing and maintenance visits are carried out by our own experienced and qualified in-house service engineers.

When a shrink wrap machine eventually comes to the end of its useful life, or shrink wrapping requirements outgrow its capabilities, we can offer part exchanges for a new wrapping machine.

YPS Circle of Life


If you want to plan for the future then talk to us. With most of our machinery we can usually provide an upgrade path. This means that even if your current production requirements don’t justify the expense of more automated packaging systems, you can plan for a time when they will.

Expert advice and demonstrations

Our sales team and engineers are always happy to give expert advice about all your heatshrink requirements. In fact, we actively encourage new customers to visit our purpose-built demonstration facility in order to see our equipment in use.

Here we can demonstrate the different capabilities of our range of machines, offer advice on the most suitable machinery for your application and, most importantly, let you see the shrink wrap machines, polyolefin and polythene shrink film and product all working together. We encourage all our customers to bring some samples of their products that we can wrap during the visit.
