Premier gets a Double A grade

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

Press release from the issuing company

The Premier Paper Group, the UK’s largest independent paper merchant, has announced that it has become a stockist of the Double A brand of office papers, which are produced and manufactured at the Alizay pulp and paper mill facility in Northern France. The Alizay mill has a combined pulp and paper production capacity of 300,000 tonnes per year.

The Double A brand of office papers includes 75, 80, 90 & 100gsm weights in A4 and A3. Double A - Business, Premium, Colorprint and Presentation are now available throughout the UK from the Premier Paper Group.

The Double A range is manufactured using eucalyptus pulp, utilising Double A’s revolutionary method for sourcing short fibre from farmers who grow specially selected trees on strips of redundant land between rice fields. This method of tree cultivation brings many economic benefits to rice farmers and their communities and is the result of more than 25 years of research and development. 

Double A is a premium paper known for its high quality and superior performance. Double A’s high fibre content makes it the best copy paper for high-speed machines, with good runnability, printing sharpness and excellent smoothness, together with a high bright whiteness.

Its smooth surface allows for good toner transfer, making copies as sharp as the original, whilst it smoothness provides a high-quality touch providing effortless printing capabilities. Its bright, white appearance provides a high print contrast and also a resistance to fading.

The opacity and excellent formation qualities of Double A are attributed to its high-quality fibre content, with some 30m fibres per gram contained in its formation. This allows for double-sided use as well as a longer storage period thanks to its acid-free content.

Having passed a ‘No Jam’ runnability test for the continuous copying of 100,000 sheets of Double A paper through a high-speed copying machine, when Double A states it has a ‘No Jam’ confirmation, it means it!

The Premier Paper Group is the UK’s leading independent paper merchant and through its business divisions and nationwide branch network, offers a great choice of products and services.

Premier Paper has 30,000 tonnes of paper held throughout its branch network, offering some 5,500 different product items, from many of the world’s leading paper manufacturers, including the UK market’s widest selection of media for digital printing.

The Premier Paper Group endeavours to be an integral and valuable part of its customers’ business providing first class services, sharing its extensive knowledge and information, offering advice and a choice of quality products.
