A.M.P Rose started out as a supplier of rebuilt packaging machines for the confectionery industry in 1978. At that stage the company employed 4 engineers in a relatively small engineering factory.
The ‘Rose’ name has been synonymous with the packaging industry since 1881, when William Rose formed Rose Brothers in Gainsborough. The very first machine that was built by William Rose was a tobacco wrapping machine, the first commodity to be mechanically wrapped for sale. He then took this knowledge to the confectionery, bakery, and tea industries.
A.M-Packaging Ltd began as a supplier of rebuilt candy wrapping machines in 1978. At that stage the company employed 4 engineers in a small engineering factory. The founder Mr Alan Mann had learned his trade as a Rose technician from the age of 16.
The business expanded to such an extent that in 1990 A.M-Packaging was able to purchase the Rose and Forgrove confectionery businesses and at that time re-named itself ‘A.M.P Rose’. You can find out more about Rose Forgrove and Rose Brothers here.
