Since our last issue published in mid-December we have seen three further examples of vendor consolidation with Pukka Pads acquiring Concord Filing in the UK, ADVEO selling its Spanish production facilities (not really ‘consolidation’, I know, but it could turn into that) and Esselte’s North American business being snapped up by RR Donnelley. This is a pattern that could well continue throughout the year as secular declines in traditional categories show no sign of easing up.
