Gordian Strapping has been manufacturing and supplying high quality strapping machines and accessories to the UK market since 1937. In the 1970s, the company began to supply the Strapack range of strapping machines and later became a distributor for the OMS range of larger pallet strapping machines. Gordian also purchased a small company producing plastic strapping, and is still in the same premises today.
