Denmaur enters the carton board arena

Denmaur Paper Media has announced the launch of its carton board division after an agreement reached with Townsend Board.
Townsend Board has been selling into the carton board sector for several years, and now Clive and Michael Townsend join the Denmaur group with an established customer base and a remit to develop the sales whilst working closely with Denmaur’s Print and Media divisions.
Their appointment will also come with the addition of three new stock lines for the group: white, cream and kraft back folding box boards, along with a new Revive branded graphical quality grey board. All of the new products will be sold as FSC certified and the white, cream and grey boards will be carbon balanced.
Clive Townsend commented, ‘We have known Denmaur for many years, both as a customer and as a supplier. Discussions about this arrangement were at an advanced stage just as the pandemic took hold, but I am pleased to confirm that we are now officially with one of the most sustainable paper and board merchants in the UK.’
Denmaur director Andy Buxton commented, ‘The addition of a carton board division will undoubtedly add strength to the group, especially as some of the key players in our traditional marketplace will unfortunately succumb to the economic impacts associated with coronavirus.’
Denmaur Paper Media operates a BRC certified storage and distribution service from its site in Bardon. It is a carbon balanced company, which is also known for being the home of the Revive recycled range and the Delipac food and drinks packaging grades.
An established name in both commercial print and publishing, Denmaur is launching its board division at an interesting time. Andy added, ‘Sustainable food and pharmaceutical packaging has a greater importance now than ever before as society adapts to the new normal. Along with Delipac, our new products and a new division with expertise in this area will enable us to respond to the demand for packaging that demonstrates social and environmental awareness.’
The Townsend Board name will continue to operate as a trading division of the Denmaur group from September 1.
