Antalis announced that it has acquired a worldwide portfolio of brands, amongst them the well-known Conqueror, Curious Collection, Keaykolour, Pop’Set and Rives from its former historical supplier Arjowiggins Scotland Limited, which was placed into Administration in September of this year.
Together with the Olin brand, this acquisition demonstrates Antalis’ commitment to continue to offer an attractive Premium Fine Papers range of Text & Cover, Letterheads, Textured boards, Premium Colored Offset, Labels and Envelopes to its customers, printers, brand owners and creative agencies.
“We are happy to provide a long-term future for these iconic brands” declared Xavier Jouvet, Antalis Group Papers Director. “We are already working on relaunching these brands with the support of best-in-class suppliers for a renewed assortment with a focus on quality and service levels. In the meantime, we have also acquired the vast majority of the remaining finished goods of these brands. This additional stock, on top of the current inventory we already have in our warehouses, should allow us to respond to most of our customer demand in the coming months until the transition to new sourcing in Q1 2023. In countries where Antalis or other KPP Group distribution companies are not directly present, our plans are to continue to make these brands available through a network of distribution partners” he added.
Alistair McAlinden, Managing Director at Interpath Advisory and Joint Administrator, said: “We are pleased to have concluded this transaction which safeguards the future of this portfolio of Premium Fine Papers.”
