I recall this company which was on the same general site as New Northfleet Mill and Kent Kraft Mill. I am unsure whether it should be included as I can only recall the parchmentising machines. Was the base paper made at the BVPM, or at the New Northfleet Mill nearby – both were part of the Inveresk group in the 1970s
