About us


John Wilkie, Managing Director, set up the company in August 2003 to continue and expand his work in the Paper, Board, and Tissue Industries. Utilising his lifetime experience in these industries he was able to, and continues, to source plant for the Paper, Board and Tissue Industries worldwide and offer it to you in convenient form via this website. In addition his extensive knowledge of the global market in this plant enables him to offer valuation services where necessary and obtain buyers for machinery no longer required. His expertise in these fields is widely acknowledged and is sought after by many participants in the paper industry worldwide and also by companies involved in mill restructuring.

John has received many excellent references from satisfied customers and copies of these are available on request.

John is assisted by Christine Wilkie, formerly working as a Chartered Accountant,  now having responsibility for the financial issues relevant to the company. Christine also maintains the web site and if there are any issues with the web site please get in touch.
