Back in 1885 George Frederick Smith had a passion to seek out the very best papers from around the world and build a business based around remarkable people and a passion to forge strong and enduring relationships. Now, over 130 years later, the world has changed but the legacy left by George remains, and continues to shape the company into the success it is today. G . F Smith takes pride in being an independent British company and is fiercely proud of its Hull roots. As one of the strongest brands in the world of creative papers, exporting to almost 70 countries, we think George would approve!
