Flexible approach to manufacturing and tailoring production runs for brands

Founded in 1751 in Rotherham South Yorkshire, Beatson Clark is proud of its long heritage. Originally manufacturing glass containers for the pharmaceutical industry, we diversified into the food and beverage markets during the 1970’s and 1980’s.

Both the food and beverage ranges have become hugely successful, with the food sector now being our largest market. However, Beatson Clark still remains the UK’s largest manufacturer of pharmaceutical glass containers.

We have a highly skilled and experienced workforce, working towards a common goal of meeting our customers’ requirements with a quality product.


With a unique pro-active approach to design, innovation is at the heart of Beatson Clark. An award winning design service with 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) systems delivering over 30 new designs for clients in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical markets every year.

An extensive general sales range has also been built up over the years, with containers in a variety of shapes and sizes readily available.


In today’s competitive marketplace, clients need a supplier who can be flexible enough to meet the challenges they face. Beatson Clark offer speed to market with a worldwide distribution base,
fast tracking on new products and bespoke containers from just 300,000 units.

Cost effective design solutions such as embossing standard containers are also available, and can be run as part of a standard campaign with quantities as small as 150,000 units.

Niche products are our speciality and our flexible approach means we are capable of both small and large production runs, depending on the needs of our clients.



Beatson Clark is the first choice for those looking to the future of packaging.

Our policy of continual improvement and investment programmes are delivering superior products. These, coupled with enhanced recycling and the sustainable credentials of glass, make Beatson Clark the environmental choice too.

Several lightweighted products already feature in the general sale range, and with over 250 products to choose from in both white flint and amber, Beatson Clark remains the glass manufacturer of choice.
