Dates of existence


Chaspec Packaging Ltd was formed as a joint venture between Don Bros, Buist & Co and the Chaspec Manufacturing Co of Greenwich, Connecticut in 1964 and was based at the Abbey Works in Arbroath. The firm manufactured a variety of packaging including boxes for the U.S. whisky industry. In 1966 Dons bought Chaspec out and renamed the firm Don & Low Ltd (which was, confusingly, later the name of the parent company). The company eventually annexed T Gaunt Rainwear, another business owned by the parent company. In 1983 the company was incorporated as Don & Low Packaging Ltd. However, lack of financial success meant that in 1985 the Don and Low group opted to sell it to Low and Bonar Ltd. It was dissolved in 1997.
