Accrol clinches £10m Lidl deal

Blackburn-based soft tissue manufacturer Accrol Group has landed a £10m deal to supply discount supermarket chain Lidl.

The contract is the latest in a string of success stories for Accrol which has continued to win new business with existing customers as well as this new contract.

The company is now installing two high-speed converting lines in its new 168,000 sq ft manufacturing facility in Leyland which will increase total capacity to 143,000 tonnes per annum.

Steve Crossley, Accrol's CEO, said: "Since the start of this financial year we have made good progress on our strategic aims and we are increasing our production capacity to enable us to take advantage of new opportunities as they arise.

"We are pleased with the new business that we have won since the start of the financial year and with progress on the manufacturing facility in Leyland, Lancashire and look forward to the future with confidence."

The AIM-listed company's interim results are set to be announced on Thursday 5 January.
