The recycling group Paprec further expands its presence in Northern France. The company has taken over the family-owned recovered paper and logistics specialist Deroo. The purchase price was not disclosed.
Deroo generates annual revenues of €48m and has 310 employees, according to Paprec. The company based in Wizernes in the Pas de Calais département sorts about 160,000 tonnes of recovered paper annually. Road transport in the region and neighbouring countries, in particular for the paper industry, is the company's second main activity and a new business field for Paprec.
