LinesearchBeforeUDig Member – DS Smith

DS Smith is a leading provider of sustainable packaging solutions, paper products and recycling services worldwide. Over the past 80 years their organisation has grown dramatically, as have their services and areas of expertise.

In the UK DS Smith owns and operates the Kemsley Paper Mill in Sittingbourne, Kent. Kemsley Mill was originally built by Edward Lloyd in 1924 to produce newsprint. At that time, its four paper machines were the largest in the world.

The mill has an annual production capacity of around 820,000 tonnes and is the second biggest recovered fibre-based paper operation in Europe.

Helping to power this substantial operation is a high pressure water pipeline, which DS Smith will be protecting through the LSBUD service.
