Why A E Chapman


We are close to you

Based in Clapham, London we hold stock of over 500 different bottles, giving our customers the confidence that their bottle will be available when they need it without the added hassle of waiting for the manufacturer to produce and supply.

We deliver throughout the UK. For larger loads (anything between 10 to 60 pallets) we use our own fleet of trucks. For the smaller quantities (anything between 1 to 10 pallets) we use 2 of the UK's leading hauliers, both of whom offer next day or economy deliveries.


We have unrivalled experience

We are glass bottle suppliers with over 50 years of experience in the business. We are superbly qualified to offer both new and existing customers advice on bottle choice, labelling, closures, and decoration. We have a ‘bottle showroom' in Clapham where you can come along to feel, touch and compare your chosen bottle. Alternatively we can supply you with samples and technical drawings for every bottle we sell.

For the past 5 years we have met the standards for a Grade A Accreditation from the British Retail Consortium. This not only has health and safety benefits for our own colleagues but also gives our customers peace of mind that the audit trail is accepted by every major retailer in the UK.


 We offer all the extras

As well as bottle supply we can also provide our customers with the following:

  • Bottle washing service at up to 30,000 per day
  • Labelling machine capable of processing up to 5000 bottles per hour
  • We can re-sort, re-pack and re-wrap almost any size of pallet
  • We can supply you with caps and stock a range of cardboard cartons and inserts
