The Logson Group, the UK’s largest independent supplier of corrugated packaging, announces the acquisition of a majority shareholding in Durham Box, an independent sheet plant based in County Durham.
The existing management team will remain with the business, continuing to lead Durham Box as a stand-alone business within the Logson Group.
Dan Morris, Managing Director, Durham Box, “I am incredibly excited to lead Durham Box into the next phase of its journey. Since being started by my parents in 1989 we have achieved great things as an independent family-run business.
“Joining forces with Logson, as our ideal partner, allows us to further expand and evolve, seamlessly complementing our existing operations while mutually benefitting both organisations.”
David Richardson, Logson Group CEO added; “Durham Box is a great addition to the Logson family, and we are pleased to have acquired the business allowing us to expand our reach into the North East of the country.
“Dan, and the team at Durham Box, have built a very strong business that has shown continued growth and development over many years. There is a strong correlation between the two organisations in terms of culture, drive and approach to customers.
“With Dan continuing as a part owner and Managing Director at Durham Box, we are very excited to be able to share expertise and capabilities with the wider Logson Group.”
Durham Box will join the existing Logson Group’s brands of Board24, Boxes and Packaging, Cases24, Jardin Corrugated, Red Rose Packaging, Boxshop and The Cardboard Box Company.
Collectively they form a unique mix of companies offering a full range of corrugated packaging solutions from 20 locations across the UK.
Logson Group has a turnover of over £400m per annum and employs over 1200 people.
