Union Papertech Limited

About Us:

Located in the North West of England, we have been manufacturing and supplying high quality filtration paper for over 50 years. With the use of the latest technology, we are recognised as an extremely innovative and versatile manufacturer, not only within the tea and coffee industries, but within other market sectors such as the food packaging industry and other non-food applications.

The flexibility of relatively small production platforms, together with the complexity of multiple-capability lines, has given Union Papertech a distinct advantage in the serve market segments. This enables the production of new and innovative products on a scale which does not deter brand commitment, yet at a consistency of quality which is representative of full brand scale. This versatility, has enabled several global brand leaders to develop new market segments, such as the coffee capsule, an area where Union Papertech was, and remains, at the forefront of development.


The Simpson Clough Paper Mill, where Union Papertech is based, has been running for over 50 years within Ashworth Valley, nestled between Bury and Rochdale. Over these 6 decades, we have established ourselves as market leaders in the UK and, after joining the Purico Group in 2006, have quickly become industry frontrunners across the World.
