Antalis has acquired Conqueror, Curious Collection, Keaykolour, Pop’Set and Rives from its former supplier Arjowiggins Scotland, which was placed into administration in September 2022.

Together with the Olin brand, Antalis will offer a paper range of text and cover, letterheads, textured boards, premium coloured offset, labels and envelopes to customers.

Xavier Jouvet, Antalis group papers director, said, ‘We are happy to provide a long-term future for these iconic brands. 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.’

 Alistair McAlinden, managing director at Interpath Advisory, said, ‘We are pleased to have concluded this transaction which safeguards the future of this portfolio of Premium Fine Papers.’
