WEPA Professional Accelerates UK Market Growth Through Acquisition of Star Tissue UK

WEPA Professional, a leading European hygiene specialist, has announced the successful acquisition of Star Tissue UK, a prominent British hygiene paper provider based in Blackburn, Lancashire. The newly acquired entity will operate under the name ‘WEPA Professional UK’, signaling WEPA’s strategic commitment to further growth in the UK’s professional hygiene market.


Andreas Krengel, CEO Business Unit Professional of the WEPA Group, expressed enthusiasm about the acquisition, stating, ‘WEPA stands for the production of high-quality tissue paper, and the UK market is strategically important for us. We are delighted to continue the impressive growth of Star Tissue with Managing Director Khalid Saifullah and his team as WEPA Professional UK.’

Under the leadership of Khalid Saifullah, who will remain as Managing Director, WEPA Professional UK aims to drive the integration process and foster continued growth. Khalid Saifullah stated, ‘In WEPA Professional, we have found a partner that shares our values and stands for high-quality products and first-class customer service.’

Star Tissue has a significant market position with three state-of-the-art fully automated converting lines, a warehouse, and modern office space. Thanks to the acquisition, customers will benefit from an expansion of the product portfolio and an international production network of the WEPA Group in the UK and at 12 other locations in Europe. Customers and partners can expect business as usual, with the same dedication to quality, service, and sustainability.

In conclusion, both WEPA Professional and Star Tissue UK are committed to a seamless transition, maintaining operations, and retaining the current workforce. The acquisition sets the stage for a successful collaboration, combining the strengths of both companies for the benefit of customers, employees, and the overall industry.
