Who We Are

Our history

Know Our History


Started the company

Prime Design was formed in 1992. Our background is in Liquid Food, Beverage, Infant Formula and FMCG. During the early years we were engaged mainly in creating detailed production line designs, factory and utilities surveys, with some demand for PM support.



In 2010 the business was restructured to support increasing demand and our success in designing, specifying and delivering complete packaging line projects globally to our clients. Since then we have expanded our capabilities and now offer a wide range of project services and continue as independent global specialists in filling and packing of Infant Formula, Liquid Food and Beverage.


Continually improving

We are very proud to work with many household brand names and a wide range of smaller organisations and continue to develop our network at every opportunity. We also undertake projects in other sectors which helps us build our portfolio of expertise and allows us to consider novel solutions from other industries in all the projects we undertake.

"Our clients expect their organisational and strategic objectives to be fulfilled when projects are delivered. Our aim is to meet that expectation through careful evaluation, detailed planning and implementation of programmes and projects."
