Why National Flexible?
National Flexible has evolved into a high quality supplier of flexible films by virtue of a unique commitment to our people, our customers, and our suppliers. As part of our commitment, we provide a support package containing an extensive list of USP's, each designed to address specific needs, solve problems, and make things easier for you.
Sustainability Packaging Audits
Designed to improve sustainability and productivity, whilst reducing costs, our FREE Sustainability Packaging Audits look at many ways in which we can help you to achieve this. Undertaken by a Packaging Engineer and Packaging Technologist, these audits are provided for customers packing lines including pack designs, forming, machine type, running speed, film utilisation, end of line, and transit packaging.
Our impartial, interactive presentation provides an unbiased view of plastic packaging, and through our expertise, we provide you with the tools and knowledge needed to protect and preserve products, without causing harm to the environment. If you are working within the packaging industry, or would simply like to learn more, then The Academy is for you.
Technical Training Workshops
Our FREE Film and Print Technical Training workshops were originally designed to develop the technical skills of our team but have since been offered to anyone who feels they could benefit from this service. From packaging machinery and types of flexible packaging to material characteristics and avoiding common problems, our workshops ensure you are using the latest film and print technology suitable for your applications.
Our designated Customer Champion will be on hand to manage every stage of the supply process and will be there to support you with any questions you may have.

Alongside proactively managing your stock, our Customer Champions will visit you regularly, personally process your orders and really take the time to understand your business needs.
