Welcome To Seevent Plastics

Seevent Plastics was formed in 1987 and is now regarded as one of the leading manufacturers of high strength industrial polyethylene sacks in the UK.

From our premises in Lancing, West Sussex, we manufacture in excess of 100 million sacks per year, offering our customers the highest possible quality and service.

However, as a fast paced industry where legislation and customer demands are paramount and can influence change almost overnight; we do not rest on our laurels, investing considerable time and resources to ensure we are providing the best product at a competitive price.

We understand that only by looking for new ways to add value, improve performance and reduce costs can we provide our customers with a solution that meets their changing needs.

Welcome to our updated website and to the page that gives you an insight into some of the people you will be speaking to and communicating with. As for myself, I have now been at Seevent Plastics for nearly 6 years and have overseen the development of the company to almost double it’s size. Every member of staff is proud of the products we produce and our core statement that the customer comes first is stronger now than it has ever been. I do hope you enjoy the website and the experience of doing business with us.

Natalie ShadboltGeneral Manager & Financial Controller
I joined Seevent Plastics as Financial Controller in February 2008. I’ve worked in finance for 15 years and love it, although this is my first position in manufacturing which makes the work even more interesting!!
I live locally with my two children, who always come first in my life, but I also enjoy socialising with my friends, walking; cycling and Italian food.

I have been with Seevent Plastics for over 4 years now and love it!! the team are wonderful to work will and our extended team (the customers) are all great. My role is very varied and as a qualified Graphic Designer I also look after the website for both Seevent Plastics and our sister company Polypus Packaging, marketing and events. In my spare time (if you could call it that? as I have a husband and two daughters !!) I go to the gym, love shopping and spending time with my family. I also try and escape at least once a year to somewhere hot and child free!!

Tate DellInternal Sales Administrator
Before joining Seevent in June 2018 I spent many years working in a variety of roles, from Project Managing for an ISP company in London to Teaching in children’s homes across West Sussex and other positions in between.

Since starting at Seevent I have enjoyed the challenge of learning all about a new industry for me and have been helped along by a great team of colleagues.

When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my wife and children, enjoying a pint with friends every now and again and being outside, enjoying the sea and the countryside here in beautiful West Sussex.

Billy Thomas
Billy ThomasEast Sales Manager
I have been in the polythene industry for 7 years now, starting off as internal sales I quickly found my feet and went on to being a director of my own business as a packaging merchant. I decided that it was time to get some experience in manufacturing and an opportunity came up at Seevent Plastics and I haven’t looked back. They are a great bunch and have harnessed my ambition, in return I manage the East territory. In my spare time apart from being a dad to my two daughters, I enjoy going to the gym, listening to music, socialising and motorbikes.

Nigel Turner
Nigel TurnerWest Sales Manager
Seevent Plastics is very successful because it has a great team, the right kit and most importantly; great customers. I enjoy working for Seevent because we never stand still and there are always new challenges to be met. I’m lucky in that I cover the North West and Wales so I get to see some of the most beautiful countryside on my travels. I started my career in the military where I served in Germany and Northern Ireland. After the army, I took an engineering degree at Leeds University. From there, I worked in the gold mines of South Africa followed by the fish industry in Scotland. I have worked in plastics as a purchasing manager for twenty years and have now completed over ten years in sales. In my spare time I love walking my two Labradors and enjoy playing tennis, golf and getting out on my bicycle.

Andrea Pratt
Andrea PrattFinance Controller
I joined Seevent in 2014 and since joining my role and responsibilities have grown to accommodate Seevent’s growth. Working alongside a great team makes Seevent a great place to work. It would be nice to say that I don’t do any finance work in my spare time but that would be a lie! My husband runs his own Company so many weekends are spent doing his accounts!! When I do get some time off, I enjoy girlie shopping trips with my daughter and my son is a prisoner to the craze that is Xbox!! My ‘me time’ is attending a mini trampoline fitness class twice weekly which is so much fun and a great way of keeping fit.
