The company began life in March 2005, based at the home of managing director Mark Woodward. But 50 percent growth in trade year-on-year has resulted in the creation of a European Sales Office based in Clitheroe, Lancashire increasing the team by fifty percent.
Mark Woodward said: “We had outgrown our existing premises and needed to employ more people to drive European and domestic demand, but simply did not have the space. Now we’ve weathered the storm of recession, this move will allow us to expand even further over the next 12 to 18 months.”
The company prints and distributes disposable paper cups for industries such as coffee to go, cold drinks, vending, sampling, retail, medical and industrial uses.
Whilst specialising in smaller quantities, they are also capable of fulfilling large orders, having produced high volumes of cups for the likes of Nestle, Robinsons, Landrover, Liverpool FC and Butlins.
Mark added: “We have a dedicated sales team to ensure customers receive answers to most queries instantly and our custom artwork can be turned around quickly through our knowledgeable design team.
“We place regular orders from manufacturers to ensure stock is available when the customer needs it.”
In addition to the Clitheroe Office, the Paper Cup Company has a UK distribution centre in Lancashire and boasts a network of distributors across the UK.
“We currently operate our own manufacturing facility in China, but as part of our expansion plans we are aiming to create a manufacturing operation here in Lancashire to create more local jobs,” added Mark.
