Our Partners

Papertex has been involved with colourants for many years, and we have considerable expertise in this area within the company. The advent of REACH has affected many companies, and Papertex is no exception. Following a strategic review in 2010, we decided to work only with suppliers that were committed to full REACH registration of their product range, and as a result have negotiated agency agreements with a number of major suppliers for the UK market. Our aim is to be able to supply our customers with small volumes within a week of them ordering. To achieve this we either hold stock in our Liverpool warehousing facility, or ship direct from the factory. Larger volumes are always shipped direct from the factory.
