About Hunprenco

Here you can find out more about Hunprenco's proud history, where it all started and our enduring commitment to the highest standards in quality in the Glass Container Industry.

Where it all started...

Hunprenco was established in 1969 by Mr Eddie Neesom, who is Chairman and Managing Director. He started a small engineering workshop in a disused stable in the North Yorkshire village of Hunmanby on the east coast of England, as well as continuing his work as a Technical Steel Sales Representative.

From his small engineering workshop Eddie began manufacturing small engineering components on a part-time basis that was no more than a paying hobby until one day in 1974 when he was approached by two gentlemen from a glass container company in South Yorkshire. They required used plungers to be refurbished. All this has resulted in the company being where it is today, recognized as the largest plunger and cooler manufacturer to the glass container industry throughout the world.

Eddie was fully aware that the company required a logo for advertisement along with product identification and therefore came up with the idea of HUNPRENCO from the original name of Hunmanby Precision Engineering Company. Letters from the start of each word were compiled to form the name HUNPRENCO.

The company now consists of two manufacturing facilities that are situated less than two kilometres apart and make up a total site area of 6,200 sq/metres. The company employs 115 personnel that include skilled machinists, metallurgists and a workforce with vast knowledge of production methods in glass container manufacture, hence maintaining it as the major force in this industry with quality and reliability second to none.
