The article reports on the claim of Beswick Paper managing director Graham Griffiths that his firm's £19 million acquisition of Premier Paper is positive for print despite industry concern over the deal. Griffiths said that the move created a third major payer against the two national merchant groups, PaperlinX and Antalis. The company's acquisition of Premier Paper came after Antalis was forced by the European Commission to sell it off in order to complete its acquisition of Map Merchant Group.
