Established in 1993, Accrol Papers Ltd is one of Europe’s largest independent soft tissue converters with manufacturing capacity in excess of 60,000 tonnes per annum.
Accrol manufactures a wide range of household and away-from-home paper products from its purpose built production facility in Blackburn.

Paper products including Toilet Rolls, Kitchen Towels and Facial Tissues are manufactured to the highest levels of quality in brands and private labels utilising the latest technological advancements.

Phase one work began with the demolition of an existing 33,000 sq ft building on Accrol’s established site which is adjacent to Centurion Park and phase 1 completed for the tissue paper giant, in Blackburn.

The new 67,000 sq ft building includes a raw materials section, a production area, a finishing area, a small goods out office, canteen and changing area.

The new facility incorporates a steel frame with merlin grey cladding, a blue trim, aluminium windows and a small amount of brickwork to the front of the building.

The development followed an exacting brief from the client and now this phase is complete, work on further phases valued at around £4/5 million can begin.
