Middleton Paper steps up with bespoke sheeting

West Midlands-based Middleton Paper has moved to easy industry concerns over the closure of LumiPaper’s Mendlesham plant by declaring it is poised to meet the demand for bespoke paper sizes.

Middleton Paper says it is well placed to help meet demand across the market

The company runs three Pasaban sheeters, as well as rewinding, guillotining and rewrapping facilities, allowing it to sheet from sizes as low as 300 x 310mm up to large-format 1,850 x 2,200mm.

Middleton Paper says the business, and its Vision Paper and Board merchant division, will be able to take advantage of this setup to offer bulk packed and ream wrapped options across a range of coated and uncoated papers and boards.

Managing director Jason Middleton highlights Quartz Triple Coated Gloss and Silk, the long-standing brand produced at the Burgo Ardennes mill, as a key product for customers moving forward.

“In these uncertain times we are all looking for something we can depend on,” Middleton says. “Quartz Gloss and Silk has been around for a long time and is now well established in the market and it will continue to be an important part of our offer.

“The Middleton Group, of which we are a part, is over 60 years old and Middleton Paper has been trading independently since 1976, so we have a long and proud history of achievements and sustained growth.”

Simon Cartwright, sales manager for Vision Paper and Board, adds: “There have been so many changes to supply recently that it can be difficult to keep up: paper mills reducing capacity and switching production to other grades may make viable sense to them, but it can leave printers stuck, especially when they have become accustomed to a certain paper or service level.  

“We are available to help meet those requirements, and Quartz is an excellent and well-respected coated paper range from one of Europe’s premium producers.”
