Logson Group acquires majority shareholding in Durham Box

The Logson Group has confirmed the acquisition of a majority shareholding in Durham Box, an independent sheet plant based in County Durham.

“I am excited to lead Durham Box into the next phase of its journey. Since being started by my parents in 1989, we have achieved great things as an independent family-run business,” said Dan Morris, Managing Director, Durham Box. “Joining forces with Logson, as our ideal partner, allows us to further expand and evolve, seamlessly complementing our existing operations while mutually benefitting both organisations.”

David Richardson, CEO, Logson Group,  added, “Durham Box is a great addition to the Logson family, and we are pleased to have acquired the business allowing us to expand our reach into the North East of the country. Dan, and the team at Durham Box, have built a very strong business that has shown continued growth and development over many years. There is a strong correlation between the two organisations in terms of culture, drive and approach to customers. With Dan continuing as a part owner and Managing Director at Durham Box, we are very excited to be able to share expertise and capabilities with the wider Logson Group.”

Durham Box will join the existing Logson Group’s brands of Board24, Boxes and Packaging, Cases24, Jardin Corrugated, Red Rose Packaging, Boxshop and The Cardboard Box Company. The existing management team will remain with the business, continuing to lead Durham Box as a stand-alone business within the Logson Group. Collectively they form a mix of companies offering a full range of corrugated packaging solutions from 20 locations across the UK.
