143,000 tonnes: Accrol’s toilet roll

Lancashire investment sees revenue potential exceed £160m
Thursday 12 Jan 2017 Author: William Cain

Tissue paper supplier Accrol (ACRL:AIM) now has capacity to produce 143,000 tonnes of toilet roll a year after investment in a new Lancashire conversion facility.

Bigger output capability at Accrol, which buys standard paper from mills and converts it into tissue products stocked in stores, translates into potential annual revenue of between £160m and £180m if new orders can be won to fill production runs.

Trailing-twelve-month revenue up to 31 October 2016 at Accrol was £123m with an underlying operating margin of around 9%.
