Founded by Wynnifred Katherine Thomas in 1930, WK Thomas dates to being one of the UK’s earliest suppliers of packaging products. During the war, WK Thomas supplied products to the military, including the US Air Force bases in East Anglia and Suffolk; this forged relationships with manufacturers of food and drink packaging products, and catering supplies. This became the catalyst for WK Thomas’ firm market presence seen today, making them one of the UK’s leading packaging companies and supplies some of the biggest brands in catering, restaurants and travel.
As a result of this, WK Thomas has partnered with Bunzl Catering Supplies to create WKT Travel. A brand that can focus solely on Travel Packaging; providing a targeted and professional service for any Travel Packaging requirements your company may need. This partnership means we can utilize a global purchasing power; sourcing responsibly, ethically manufactured products from the UK and overseas, via trusted supplier partnerships. Couple this with WK Thomas’ heritage & experience in Travel Packaging supplies & design and we can now leverage this service to more customers with more resource than ever before.
