Based in Tyneside, Rosewood Packaging is a family-owned manufacturer of timber and corrugated packaging, established in 1953.
It has recently been on the acquisition trail – it bought two DS Smith Packaging businesses in North Shields, as well as Merlin Packaging in Gateshead and in 2015, and the acquisition of George Hill Rosewood in Wolverhampton.
The firm designs and manufactures packaging for industrial applications – particularly in the packaging mediums of timber & performance corrugated.
This acquisition means Rosewood has six manufacturing facilities and four production sites across Tyneside and a production site in Wolverhampton, with a 150-strong workforce.
Scott Packaging was previously known as Henry Sutcliffe and is part of the Scott Group – a leading industrial supplies organisation specialising in pallets, sustainable pallet solutions and packaging.
John Lord, group sales director of Rosewood Packaging, said he had been aware of the previous Henry Sutcliffe business for many years and fits inneatly with the company.
“Like Rosewood on Tyneside and the George Hill Rosewood site in Wolverhampton, it is also part of the highly regarded Tri-Wall Europe fabricator network. This product range, combined with its highly skilled and experienced workforce, made it a very attractive acquisition for us.
“The purchase of the business aligns with our strategy to expand geographically across to the North West. The site will be known as Rosewood Packaging (Manchester), and we will provide the business with the support needed to assist its growth & to ensure that the site remains one that we are all proud of”.
