7 August 2007 — Newport (UK): Six Integra dealers have been taken on an all expenses paid trip to Hamburg after winning a competition, run in conjunction with The Paper Company (PaperCo).
The UK dealer group teamed up with PaperCo to mark the launch of its 100 percent recycled paper range – initiative. The winners, who each purchased three pallets of the paper during March, enjoyed a trip to the Steinbeis Temming mill where the initiative recycled paper is produced.
The winners included Simon Bishop of Bishops Office Supplies, Matthew Harvey of ODM, Anna Davies at PBS, Phillip Rattigan at Penkeths, Peter Wallis of Wallis Business and Carl Dovey of Doveys Office. The winners were accompanied by Integra’s managing director, Aidan McDonough, and Alex Duthie, business development manager.
Aidan McDonough said: "We have had a great response to our initiative recycled paper following its launch at the beginning of the year which demonstrates not only our commitment to environmentally responsible products but also our members’ commitment. We’d like to say congratulations to all the winners who very much enjoyed seeing first hand how this product is made and how it can make such a difference to the environment."
Charles Eaton, marketing manager at PaperCo, added: "We are enjoying great success with the sales of initiative and the winners were very impressed by the mill and the trip provided them with first hand knowledge of the quality and environmental credentials of the brand."
