The impact of Brexit – Should we start stockpiling loo roll??!!

The UK is living in a world of uncertainty at the moment, from trade deals to votes of no confidence, and the mention of potential rationing to our everyday commodities takes us back to Britain in wartime. But what does a no-deal Brexit mean for your everyday shopping list?

The UK imports everything from food, fuels, medicine and vehicles so a no-deal Brexit could mean not just potential delays at ports for these materials entering the country, but also a spike in the price of these items for the customers who need them. Pulp is a raw material required to manufacture paper, whether it’s newspapers and magazines or toilet paper and kitchen towel, and it’s also a material which is imported into the UK market.

Panic not!

Toilet paper is on everyone’s weekly shopping list whether it’s a deluxe brand or a budget variety, so it is of course going to be an item in high demand 365 days of the year, deal or no deal! Here at Nova Tissue UK, our warehouse is fully stocked ready for all Brexit eventualities. We pride ourselves in always trying to give our customers the very best offer (and paper for their pound!), so we’ve focused on buying our raw materials from UK suppliers to ensure minimal disruption for our customers.

As always, we will be providing the same level of service throughout this period of uncertainty and are confident that our Nova Tissue customers will continue to receive the very best offer.

 

 

Making a splash with 10% extra!

At Nova Tissue we keep a close eye on the paper conversion market to ensure that we’re always giving our customers the best product at the best price. From visiting World Trade Shows to meet other professionals, tissue makers, converters and suppliers within the industry, to using the expertise of our team to develop our own products, we adapt with the marketplace and are constantly implementing improvements at our Oldham factory.

To keep up with market trends, we’ve increased the height of one of our best selling products, our Splash 4 pack Kitchen Towel, by 10%. This added extra will come at no additional cost to give our customers the very best value for money.

We’re proud that the Splash branded products are now well recognised with our customers and are consistently among our best sellers, from the price marked packs to the Jumbo Roll. The emboss pattern included on each roll looks fantastic but also serves another purpose; ensuring maximum absorbency for spillages thanks to it’s exclusive higher grammage paper.

That’s a wrap! Nova Tissue invests in new high-tech wrapper machine from Serbia

We’re always looking for ways to improve our factory and invest in the newest technology so that we can keep up with our customers’ demand for low cost, quality toilet paper and kitchen towel. We’re looking forward to welcoming a brand new wrapper RW4-40 from Stax Technologies, a powerful packaging machine which has the ability to wrap a variety of toilet rolls and kitchen towels.

Stax Technologies is a renowned international company that is dedicated to developing the most innovative packaging machines for the tissue converting industry worldwide. Their machines are world-class and notorious within our sector so we’re thrilled to be bringing one to our head office in Oldham for our UK and international customers.

Once introduced to the Nova Tissue factory floor, the wrapper will be set to work packing up to 130 single layer packs per minute and up to 70 double layer packs per minute. The high speed and low maintenance cost of this machine will allow us to continue offering our customers the very best price and speed of order, something that we’re always looking to improve.

The new wrapper RW4-40 will replace two of our older machines making our factory floor more efficient and fit for the future. We are awaiting delivery of the machine from Serbia so keep an eye on our Twitter and Linkedin pages for the announcement of its arrival to Oldham!
