About DS Smith plc

David Solomon Smith founded DS Smith Plc in 1940 as a business focused on manufacturing cartons. The company expanded quickly through strategic acquisition of companies like St Regis Paper Company (acquired in 1986), Kemsely Paper Mill (acquired in 1988), Kayserberg Packaging (acquired in 1991), and Spicers (acquired in 1993). The company continued to acquire other businesses way into the new millennium.

Presently, DS Smith Plc operates in two major segments; the manufacturing segment provides packaging products like plastics and corrugated packaging products. The other segment is the business services sector. Here, the company provides a range of services that include waste management services, confidential shredding, and packaging machine systems.

Through several subsidiaries, the company has operations in the United Kingdom as its primary market, Northern, Western, and Central Europe, and the United States. In the late 1950s, the company floated its shares on the London Stock Exchange, and it trades under SMDS as its symbol. The company has its headquarters in London, UK.
