Vision Paper & Board expands into Scotland


Vision Paper & Board, one of the UK’s leading


merchant-converters, has announced further expansion plans with the opening of a new warehouse facility in Scotland. As part of its continued expansion programme, the new stock holding facility in Whitburn, West Lothian, is situated between Glasgow and Edinburgh. This development brings the company closer to its


growing Scottish customer base, allowing faster shipments and timed delivery slots.


David Joyce, key accounts manager Scotland, commented: “This new facility underlines our commitment to Scotland, and will enable us to offer same day delivery to many of our Scottish customers, and next day delivery across the country, in addition to our massive inventory of reels and sheets, and our bespoke size cutting facility and local stockholding.” The warehouse expansion now brings the company’s total stockholding to around 20,000 tonnes, having already made significant investment in its conversion and storage facility in the Midlands in England.

Myra Jobson 1940 – 2015


Myra Jobson, co-founder of converting machinery equipment supplier Jarshire, has died at the age of 75 after a long illness. Together with husband Peter, she formed the company in 1979 to serve the paper, board, film and foil industries, and only retiring at age 70 in September 2010. Tributes to Myra, and her reputation for even-handedness and fair


play, are being received from many quarters, including companies that have been Jarshire agencies since the very beginning. Myra and Peter’s sons, David and Nick, who head-up the two


Jarshire divisions, are determined to live up to Myra’s legacy, agreeing that, whilst she was rock-steady in her business approach, she never lost sight of what was really important – family, good friends, and the relationships she developed and enjoyed during her long career. They said: “We will miss her ready smile – and the occasional reprimand if she felt that her standards were not being maintained!”
