New Writtle business launched – Connect Archive and Mailing Products Ltd.
On 22 December 2011, Writtle expanded its presence in the mailing and archive sector of the packaging industry with the acquisition of the business and assets of Smurfit Kappa Stationery Products through its newly formed subsidiary Connect Archive and Mailing Products Ltd (Connect AMP). Connect AMP will be headed by Writtle director Chris Cahn and will operate alongside its sister Writtle business Connect Packaging Ltd to create a £15m turnover packaging division within Writtle. Chris Cahn commented “The growth of the internet and home delivery is benefitting niche operators in the packaging sector and Connect AMP has several existing products with IP protection, and other product developments undergoing transit trials. Connect AMP will complement Writtle’s existing packaging business and work closely with the design and manufacturing teams”.
