PPB was originally founded in 1978 as Proctor Paper and Board by John Proctor in Leeds as a paper and board stockist merchant. Today, PPB remains a family business and has since invested heavily to provide a wide range of plastic, paper, board, and ACM display materials and finishing services for the screen print, large format litho print, and the digital display markets as well as supplying sign makers and fabricators.
We now have four centres of operation, in Leeds, Leicester, Thurrock and Sidcup and stock held in over 85,000 square feet of modern high bay warehousing. 95% of our deliveries are made by our own lorry fleet throughout the U.K. On an average day our fleet will handle around 100 tonnes of material and our staff pick and convert over 4500 order lines every month.
