Once upon a time in 1913, A packaging business named pickering & Mayell was formed in Birmingham's jewellery quarter, servicing local jewellers.

Fast forward to 1941 and a new packaging company came to town called Talbots. Founded by Frederick Fowler, the arrival of Talbots was the first step in establishing what would become one of the UK’s leading packaging providers.

In 1961, Frederick passed on the business to his son Graham Fowler who continued to build the Talbots name.

With a strong ambition to grow, Graham approached Pickering & Mayell and acquired the business in 1981, establishing Talbots as one of the most experienced packaging providers in the business.

The arrival of 2010 saw a new direction for Talbots. Frederick’s granddaughter, Julie Fowler-Drake, took over the business as managing director from her father. With a strong background in design and a keen eye for style, Julie was able to take Talbots from a packaging wholesaler to a vibrant, ambitious and innovative proactive packaging partner, servicing clients around the world.

The rest, as they say, is history...
