Cyfraniadau Grŵp

J A Weir commenced the production of fine papers using esparto grass pulp in 1875, and by 1896 had formed the limited company, J & A Weir Ltd. Kilbagie began supplying Gestetner in the early 1920s, who, in 1965, bought J & A Weir Ltd and began modernising the mill. After operating under the name of Gestetner from 1969, the business was bought by the Pratt Group of Melbourne, Australia, and traded under the name of Weir Paper Products Ltd until its acquisition by Inveresk plc in 1995. Inversk announced the closure of Kilbagie in 2001. The machines shut but the deinking operations were purchased by Leicester Paper Co but the site was closed in Jan 2005.
