Founded in 1981 by David Hardman, 70, and Charles Ingham, 66, this company manufactures paper products such as display boards and postal tubes. In 2011 it invested in a new laminating machine, taking its capacity to 80,000 tonnes a year. Demand from Europe and the Middle East, and a website available in five languages, helped exports grow to £1.8m in 2014.
