Around the world, we deliver the papers and materials our customers want, when they want it. We operate a range of distinct businesses across 26 countries; local businesses with worldwide links. Together, we have grown to become one of the world’s largest merchants.
We manufacture and distribute high-quality fine paper used in offices, as well as specialty papers used in brochures, magazines, annual reports and other business applications. We are expanding our range in other materials, such as sign and display products, industrial packaging and graphics.
The companies that make up PaperlinX today have a long history in paper. In Australia, some businesses have been making paper since 1939, and, in Europe, others have been distributing paper since the 1600s.
We have a vested interest in developing a sustainable business model and providing leadership, particularly in the environmental area, for the future success of our business. Our growing range of paper and materials with strong environmental credentials is an example of how we are shaping our business to meet the challenges ahead.
