Founded in 1915 by John & Hugh Dickson to make sandbags during the war, Sackmaker have evolved over almost a century, manufacturing hessian sacks until the 1970's before becoming one of the first companies in the UK to manufacture Woven Polypropylene (WPP) sacks. They now operate from a modern factory & warehouse in Glasgow.
