The DS Smith Difference

DS Smith is a leading manufacturer of sustainable corrugated case materials, speciality papers and high-performance papers for packaging production. Our wide range of products, experience, knowledge and commitment are helping our customers to meet their commercial and sustainability challenges.

We are already working in partnership with our customers throughout Europe and the US to develop the bespoke strategies, packaging solutions and technical support they need - and society demands.

You’ll experience the DS Smith Difference whenever you work with us. Here are just some of the benefits you will enjoy:

A wide range of products

Following the acquisition of Europack in 2018, we’ve expanded our product range even further, becoming a leading manufacturer of sustainable paper products. Our products range from recycled to kraft, including white liners, brown liners, medium/fluting, dual-use, coated grades and high-performance papers. We also offer speciality products such as plasterboard, coreboard, paper plates and more.

Our paper supply network stretches across 13 European paper mills and two mills in the US, ensuring we work flexibly to meet our customers’ requirements. Although we’re proud to have become one of the biggest papermaking operations in the world – employing over 3,000 people – we never forget the importance of a personal service. We take an individual approach to account management and each of our regions employs a dedicated commercial manager who personally deals with sales enquiries.

Specialist technical service and expertise

Our excellent technical specialists, engineers and other technical customer support staff are on hand every day to support and advise our clients with a broad range of enquiries, from optimising corrugator machines to solving the technical issues as and when they arise. The experience and knowledge of our team are shared between our mills and customers, enabling best practice and continuous development.

We continuously invest in the papermaking machinery and technology in our paper mills to ensure we produce the best possible products on the market. Our investments also allow us to expand our product range and work closely with our customers to find new ways to maximise the performance of our papers. Together we are applying our experience and ambition to develop the innovative papermaking solutions that they need – and which society demands.

Sustainability commitments

We believe we have a vital role to play in addressing some of the world’s most complex environmental challenges. That’s why we put sustainability at the heart of our paper production processes, working with our suppliers to ensure that 100% of the fibre we use comes from recycled or chain of custody certified papers.


We pride ourselves on maintaining the highest standards. Our certifications range from quality management, environmental management, safety management, and energy management to chain of custody certifications. To maintain our very high standards, we continually monitor and improve our activities across product quality, safety and the environment.
