UK baking case manufacturer Chevler has established a speciality papers division.
The newly formed division is being spearheaded by Phil Brooks as national sales manager, who confirmed that Chevler will offer a full range of siliconised greaseproof, greaseproof, single-proof and vegetable parchment papers to the UK and Irish baking industry in industry-standard and bespoke sheet sizes.
The bakery papers join the company’s Meat Saver Paper range, which it has been selling to the UK and European meat industry for many years.
Stuart Whelan, Chevler managing director, said: “We are delighted that Phil Brooks has joined us. He brings with him many years of experience and, more specifically, technical expertise of when and how bakers should use these papers to their best effect.
“With the sheeting equipment we have at our Hengoed factory and our experience in manufacturing Meat Saver Paper it is a natural move for us to make.
“For quite a while now, we have bakery customers asking us for such products and although we always sold a small quantity, we felt the time was right to set up a separate operation.
“It is a further signal of our strategy to continue growing and developing our business for the long-term, investing in and developing our existing capabilities and seeking out new opportunities which build on our market-leading position.”
