Northwood Paper Sales has boosted its presence in the UK Away from Home (AfH) tissue market after it acquired the shares of Peter Grant Papers.
The company will continue to operate as Peter Grant Papers and be led by the key members of the existing management team in the converting plant in Telford and the tissue mill in Lancaster, UK.
The current owner has now retired.
Northwood Paper Sales supplies raw materials to the tissue sector and is a historical supplier to Peter Grant Papers.
It and its associated companies are headed up by Paul and Adam Fecher, who also own Connect Hygiene Products and Disley Tissue.
All the businesses will continue to operate as separate entities.
Paul Weddle, sales and marketing director of Peter Grant Papers said: “This acquisition provides Peter Grant Papers with the perfect opportunity to move forward in the UK AfH market."
Paul Fecher added: “Our company has served Peter Grant Papers with tissue for more than 20 years and we know many of the operators as well as senior managers, their dedication and commitment to the business is much appreciated.
"We are pleased to welcome all of them now as colleagues and look forward to working together to continue to strengthen the company and our offering and service to the market.”
The company was unable to comment further at this time.
