The Colour Carton Company Ltd , part of the UPAC Group , is pleased to announce the acquisition of the solid board and litho/lam division of the East Kilbride manufacturer, The Central Box Company Ltd.

The deal fills a crucial product gap in the UPAC Group plan to offer a single source solution for packaging customers across the UK and provides an optimal platform to launch itself onto the market. Colour Carton specializes in box manufacturing, print, assembly and contract packaging. Being a part of the UPAC Group provides them with significant resource perks including an investment fund of £500,000 along with an experienced team equipped exclusively for product promotion and sales.

With a newly appointed Managing Director, Allan Cochrane , Commercial Director, Mike McCole and Sales Director, Iain Stephen, CCC has real strength in terms of experience and knowledge.

"These are certainly exciting times for the UPAC Group" states Chris Kelly, Managing Director at WMW, "as a merchant who is taking a degree of control over our own supply chain, we at the UPAC Group see this as a blueprint for further acquisitions down the line and are confident this will benefit both supplier and consumer alike".
