Uncoated Board & Paper

Anderton Board and Packaging Ltd is the largest independent merchant and stockist of greyboard in the UK and as such is able to offer a wide selection of specifications at very competitive prices.

We focus on providing environmentally sustainable solutions to meet customer requirements. Our experienced team has vast product knowledge and is able to suggest the right product to meet specific technical requirements.

Our range of greyboard, chipboard and fibreboard is produced from 100% recycled, post consumer paper waste and is itself 100% recyclable. Within the UK, paper and board recycling channels are firmly established on both a domestic and industrial level.

  • Pasted and unpasted greyboard
  • White lined, black lined and blue lined greyboard
  • Super smooth grey board
  • Mill board
