A brief history of Perkin

A brief history of Perkin

Posted by Perkin on Apr 13, 2013

Joseph Perkin started in 1860 making engineers’ hand tools. By 1900, in partnership with John Perkin, the company was producing a range of machine tools and in 1930, Leonard Perkin introduced the first Perkin spiral paper tube machine. The range rapidly increased to include ancillary equipment. The cardboard tube was an ideal medium, the composite container, for containing powders, sweets etc and lid forming and closing machines were created to complete the package . The war saw the same technology used in the making of shell canisters. John Kenneth Perkin followed in 1948. The rapid expansion of the plastic industry in the fifties and sixties ironically required cardboard cores on a large scale and he used new techniques to make the machines for this.  Many other requirements for paper tubes came into being.  Amongst others over 200 winders were made for the tissue industry, still important to us now.  A similar number were made as dry cell battery production was devolved to developing countries, a cardboard tube being part of its construction. Colin Perkin joined in 1970, his first major development being machines for packaging explosives for the mining industry. This was followed by many complete plants to make cardboard texturizing and spinning tubes for the textile industry.  Meanwhile the composite container developed to package more difficult products and drinks containers.  The cycle continues with the current emphasis on composite can and textile tube markets as the market evolves...
