• Denmaur Paper Media is delighted to announce the launch of their carton board division after an agreement reached with Townsend Board.

    The Townsend Board team have been selling into the carton board sector for several years, and they join the Denmaur group with an established customer base and a remit to develop sales whilst working closely with Denmaur's Print and Media divisions.

    Denmaur's centrally based BRC certified warehouse will now stock a comprehensive range of graphical and carton board products for next day delivery throughout the UK.

    So, as we do throughout the commercial print and publishing sectors, we are now able to provide the expertise and products to meet the growing demand for today's innovative and sustainable packaging solutions.
