Gemplastics - About Us

About Us

Gem Plastics was founded in 1988 in Cavan, lreland as a division of the lubricants distribution company Gem Oils, which was established in 1962.

Since then, Gem Plastics has developed and expanded its range of blow moulded HDPE Drums, Jerricans, associated services and customer portfolio, supplying fillers - mainly those in the chemicals, pharmaceuticals and food and beverage industries - throughout the British Isles, including some of the world's leading multi-national players in these sectors.

The vast majority of Gem's containers have UN packaging performance certificates, approving them for the lnternational Transport of Dangerous Goods. Additionally, they are made in conformance with ISO 9001 quality management systems, as well as a high level of GMP compliant processes and full observance of environmental welfare issues. 

Twenty five years later, Gem Plastics remains a family owned company with inherent traditional values centred on upholding the highest standards in everything it does. The business is led by an experienced management team who, along with a loyal and dedicated workforce, places customers needs at the forefront of its everyday activities. Equally, it maintains an avid R&D focus in key areas such as raw materials, processes, products and customer service.
