Our Story

Star Tissue was Established in 2003 with the aim of becoming a world-class manufacturer of hygiene paper products. Building on the 45 years of experience the family had in the paper industry the business started off in a small unit in Blackburn and in 2011 relocated to the current mega site on Waterfall Street.

Star Tissue is one of the UK’s leading independent manufacturers of hygiene paper products. It manufactures a wide range of household and away-from-home paper products from its custom-built production facility in Lancashire. As a family-owned business Star Tissue is proud of its strong reputation in the industry for providing exceptional customer service and value for money, whilst adhering to the highest ethical and environmental standards.

The Star Tissue site has now expanded to cover over 6 acres of land, 3 state-of-the-art fully automated production lines, and brand-new office facilities to house our exceptional staff. With the recent investment Star Tissue’s production operation now has the capacity to convert 30,000 tonnes of tissue per annum and produce over 1,000,000 quality rolls per day. Continued investment in the warehouse and logistics operation now sees Star Tissue able to hold over 5,000 pallets of finished goods in stock and deliver up to 500 pallets across the UK and Ireland daily.
