Further Expansion in Ireland
Following the acquisition of UniBoard, Elliott Baxter (EBB) has continued to invest in both sales and logistics; UniBoard moved to new purpose-designed premises in Rathcoole, increasing storage capacity to 12,000 pallets in December 2019.
In April 2020 UniBoard launched a full stock range of paper products aimed at the commercial print sector, this includes many of Europe’s leading grades: Sappi GalerieArt, Horizon, Soporset and Navigator. In its latest move EBB has opened a local sales office in Belfast to look after Northern Ireland commercial print customers.
The team, lead by Sonny Vance, moved in to the new branch in July 2020, with specific responsibility of supporting
the existing customers whilst launching the newly available paper ranges.
“Our initial plan of acquiring UniBoard and relocating to a new premises to increase capacity went very well. We
have now been able to add a satellite branch in Belfast to further improve service to customers across Ireland” said
Chris Sandwell, Groups Sales Director.
Further investment in Ireland is planned with in-house logistics capability planned for 2021. Elliott Baxter is the UK’s leading privately owned paper and board merchant
