Elliott Baxter has acquired independent carton board and graphical board distributor Warren Board

"Warren Board has been a leader in the supply of Carton Board grades for many years in the UK, as a competitor we have admired their professionalism, their stock range and the way they deal with the Carton Printers," said Matt Elliott, MD of EBB. "Our new combined strength with Warren Board will see improved choice and better service to all of our UK and Ireland based customers.

"The Elliott Baxter Group is now, not just the largest independently owned paper merchant in UK & Ireland, but also the largest carton board merchant in UK & Ireland," Elliott added.

Warren Board will continue to operate from both its 112,000 square-foot warehouse in Glenfield, Leicestershire and 42,000 square-foot converting plant in West Bromwich, which has the capacity to convert over 5,000 tonnes of product per year.

Barry Pincott, founder of Warren Board, commented, "After 44 years building Warren into the company that it is today, the time is right for Anne Ferguson and I to fully retire. With the help of our excellent Board of Directors, without whose help we could not have achieved the success we have today, it was felt we needed a partner who could invest and help us grow to reach our full potential."
