Four successful business men joining two puzzle pieces each bein

Premier Paper Group has been acquired by Japan Pulp and Paper Company Limited.

With operations in North America, Central America, Asia, Middle East, Australasia and Europe, Japan Pulp and Paper Company Limited (JPP) is a business operating in many diverse sectors but with paper at its core. It is best known in the UK for its publishing merchant Gould Paper Sales.

Premier Paper MD, Dave Allen, stated: “Premier Paper is one of the most successful paper merchants in Europe, and for some time the board of directors has been searching for a partner that can help the company build on our current success and achieve our full development potential. Our strategy of diversifying into parallel market sectors, such as display and packaging, whilst maintaining our position in the core coated and uncoated sector, will continue.

“We believe that being part of JPP will help us achieve our business growth objectives and continue to provide a wide choice of products and a first class level of service to customers across the UK. This, in turn, will ensure that Premier Paper continues to prosper, providing a secure future for the company and all employees.”

The existing Premier Paper management team remains in place and is fully engaged in this new and exciting phase of the company’s development as part of the JPP organisation.
