DS Smith acquires Middleton Recycling

DS Smith will be appearing at this year’s Logistics Link North exhibition hot off the acquisition trail having just acquired the recycling division of Middleton Paper.

Generating approximately 9,000 tonnes of fibre a year, Middleton Paper’s recycling division deals with a wide range of paper and cardboard grades. DS Smith is the largest fibre recycler in Europe, recovering 5.4 million tonnes of paper and packaging annually, providing the raw materials for its paper making operations.

Peter McGuinness, CEO of DS Smith, recycling division, said: “The Birmingham region is a key industrial and commercial area and the purchase of Middleton Recycling will allow us to target material and grow our presence here.”

DS Smith will be exhibiting at the Logistics Link North exhibition later this month, which returns to Doncaster Racecourse on 15th and 16th October – making it the best place for logistics, warehouse and distribution managers to find the latest innovations in intra-logistics technology.

A host of leading companies will be showing innovations in warehouse management and automation, software solutions, adaptive packaging, intelligent picking, materials handling and mobile technology.

The show provides the opportunity to meet key suppliers, attend live demos to get invaluable first-hand insight into how products work in practice, and pick up practical know-how in seminars.
