We are delighted to be able offer more than 30 jobs to a team of people with many years experience and a great track record in the business forms, direct mail and digital inkjet markets. This is an excellent opportunity to grow our business in this sector and the fit with our current business ensures that paper producers have a route to market and customers have a service offer that they can rely on”
The new Premier Reel Paper senior management team comprises Steve Webb, Sam Catterall and Ben Woolf.
Steve Webb said “I am very pleased that the Reel Paper and Savory Paper team is now working with Premier and we are all very much looking forward to an exciting future as part of the Group. We will still be based in Castle Donington and our immediate priority is to ensure that it is business as usual for our customers. After that we intend to build our business by working closely with our suppliers to develop new product offerings and continue to look for ways to improve customer service levels”
