Who we are


Founders Sam and Will Boex recognised the impact that single use plastic was having on their local and the world’s marine environment. Their passion for surfing and their personal experience of transporting boards around the globe inspired them to create a sustainable packaging sleeve for the board sports industry.

Since the early days supported by individuals and organisations championing the plastic-free movement, Flexi-Hex has expanded and developed but the founding commitments have remained the same. Flexi-Hex now develops sustainable packaging solutions across a wide range of commercial and industrial sectors.

Our Promise

Remove Plastics

Our mission is to reduce global plastic production within the packaging industry and replace with paper based alternatives. We ensure all of our packaging materials come from sustainable sources and are fully recyclable at the end of their life.

Waves of Change

Born out of a love for the sea, we pledge to create packaging solutions which will have a high impact on businesses and a low impact on the ocean, whilst helping to provide awareness of the continued threats to our marine environments.

Smaller Footprint

As a business, we realise we have a responsibility to act. That’s why every stage of our supply chain is carbon considered and we're committed to making the best products using the least possible resources. In 2020 we aim to offset our carbon footprint and support conservation projects we care about.
