We are a leading provider of corrugated packaging in Europe and are present in 36 countries, employing around 26,000 people.
Our story can be traced back to the box-making businesses started in the 1940s by the Smith family in East London. DS Smith originally listed on the London Stock exchange in the late 1950s.
In the financial year 2015/16, DS Smith has once again delivered on all our financial metrics, with strong organic volume growth, and improvement in margin, returns and dividends. In addition, the business has taken another significant step forward in the expansion of our European footprint with five acquisitions completed in the year for a total of £433 million, expanding our presence in 13 countries.
