Dutch company Rootring specialises in resizing, re-conditioning, cutting, rewinding and sheeting all kinds of paper. It has been renamed as Rootring Paper & Converting following the acquisition by its compatriot Texo.
Texo said Rootring's ability to process rolls up to 3.7m wide meant it occupied a unique position in the wholesale trade. The company was founded by brothers Dik and Gerard Rootring and is run now by third-generation family member Liz Rootring who will remain on as managing director.
She said: “Our greatest strength lies in the fact that we enable paper to be used to replace plastic or other materials in virtually any production process.
“This means that, collectively, Rootring and our customers can make an immense contribution to the circular economy, which will in turn help achieve our sustainable climate objectives.”
Texo will use Rootring’s capabilities to extend its services, providing special and non-standard product specifications to customers.
