About Us

About S and B

It is our policy to continuously strive for the highest standards in product quality and customer service. We aim to deliver insulation that exceeds expectation.

That’s what makes us one of the UK’s best EPS manufacturers.


Smith & Blakely packaging was formed as a converter of expanded polystyrene [EPS], cutting various shapes for packaging to a wide selection of end users.


S and B Became a Limited Company.


The decision was taken to become a manufacturer of EPS. This enabled us to maintain our growth and offer our services to a wider customer base. S and B EPS Ltd was born.


The process of installing the necessary equipment began in January and was completed in April – the first blocks were produced.


Phase one of our expansion completes.


We gained accreditation to become an ISO 9001 registered company whilst at the same time being able to issue a declaration of conformity to BSEN 13163, entitling us to CE mark our products.


The second stage of our expansion is completed. We gained accreditation to supply a new high thermal performance expandable polystyrene to BSEN 13163 called Lambdatherm.


We obtained certification to CE mark civil engineering products to BSEN 14933:2007 standard.


S and B obtained ISO14001 and gained accreditation for warm beam.
