LPC Group

LPC group claims to be one of Britain’s largest independent manufacturers of tissue paper products. The company can produce more than 100,000 tonnes of tissue at its Leicester base, and supplies products including paper towels and toilet paper to 27 countries. In 2007 the company acquired two new mills in Belgium and France to add to its British and Swedish paper mills. Earlier this year, the Tejani family, the owners, announced plans to invest in development in Uganda, where they ran a thriving coffee business before relocating to Britain. Sales reached £207.2m in 2008.
