Thermopacks®

Thermopacks is the original heat pack company.  The technology behind the first-ever Thermopacks products is the same technology used in every commercially-produced hand warmer and heat pack produced worldwide today. Thermopacks continues to be the only UK-based manufacturer of heat packs and cold packs, and one of only two manufacturers in Europe. 

The product range has been developed and added to over time. As well as hand warmers, cold packs and liquid filled incentives, we also manufacture conference, desktop, travel and point of sale product lines.  The team are happy to share their extensive experience to help develop creative and bespoke merchandise requirements.

Many members of the production team at Thermopacks have worked with the products since they were first launched over 30 years ago, and continue to be involved in the manufacturing process today – that’s dedication for you!
