From 1885 onwards GFSmith has become one of the UK’s most well-respected and successful brands in the world of fine papers. Fiercely proud of its Hull roots, the company trades both nationally and internationally with exports to over 60 countries.

George Frederick Smith built a business based on three fundamentals – remarkable people, relationships and a desire to seek out and bring the very best to the marketplace. George’s legacy from 130 years ago is key to our success today and these values have never been more deeply ingrained.

Our plans for the medium term include further developing our international sales market, continually investing in employee engagement to ensure GFSmith is a local employer of choice and looking towards 2017 to see what part we can play in City of Culture year.
