Vision Paper and Board and Stora Enso Renewable Packaging announce new partnership

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

West Midlands-based merchant and convertor Vision Paper and Board, part of the Middleton Paper Group, are now stockists of Tamfold, a high-quality packaging grade, which is stocked hard-sized and FSC certified as standard. 

Tamfold offers excellent value, runnability and performance in pharmaceutical, food and chocolate packaging. The continuous product development of Tamfold has resulted in excellent stiffness and bulk attributes. It has a good visual appearance and performs well in the printing and converting processes. Tamfold is suitable for digital printing, laser and inkjet coding, as well as Braille embossing.

Tamfold is particularly well suited for food service, such as clamshells used for fast food packaging, since there is no added OBA (Optical Brightening Agents). Tamfold is often chosen for pharmaceutical and chocolate packaging due to its quality consistency and value for money. 

Ian Pentland, Commercial Director said, ‘Stora Enso have been a strategic partner for our Group for many years and we are delighted to stock their Tamfold grade. Tamfold has a bulk to grammage ratio better than most rival grades which enables us to offer huge yield advantages over competitor grades. Tamfold deliveries have already started to arrive at our conversion site in the West Midlands. We can service virtually all of our customer needs with a stock holding of both standard sizes and cutter reels for most bespoke requirements. This enables us to deliver any quantity from a packet to a full truck load. It is another element of our recently announced multi-million pound investment plan which includes new equipment, increased stockholding and a new fleet of vehicles.’

Bob Swallow, Stora Enso UK & Ireland Sales Manager, Merchant & Graphical Boards added, ‘Tamfold is a true all-rounder for packaging when product protection, performance and reliability are paramount. We are very pleased to make it available through the Middleton Paper Group, with the local stock that enables quick deliveries according to customers’ individual material demands.’

Stora Enso produces Tamfold in compliance with US and European direct food contact legislation, Packaging Waste directive, REACH, FSC Chain of Custody, PEFC Chain of Custody, ISO9001, ISO14001, ISO22000 and OHSAS18001.
