About Us

Finding A Cost Effective Solution Is Our Ultimate Goal!

Papertex, founded in 2002, is a privately owned company that focuses on supplying high quality products and services to industrial customers. Our origins are in the paper industry, but we now also work with other heavy industrial industries such as energy generation, chemical manufacturing, and industrial water treatment operations to name a few.
Products are also sold to the paper industry, masterbatch producers, ink manufacturers, and to niche specialist companies. We have in the past sold “commodity” pigments, but have now decided to concentrate on higher grade products such as high performance and pearlescent pigments.

Stan Jenkins

Papertex was formed by the current CEO, Stan Jenkins. After beginning his career working for Wiggins Teape – both in R&D and in a paper mill, Stan worked for almost twenty years for a number of global chemical companies, including American Cyanamid, Cytec and Bayer, supplying the paper and water treatment industries. With an international background in both sales and technical service, Stan was able to bring a wealth of experience to his new company. Originally his main focus was consultancy, with global clients such as Buckman Laboratories, Clariant, Data Mobility Systems, Nalco, Eka, and Ashland, as well as smaller companies across the globe.  While consultancy still takes up a lot of Stan’s time, he also supports Martin in the colourants business.
