A Royal Warrant of Appointment for
 I. Waterman (Box Makers) Ltd

I. Waterman (Box Makers) Limited, a leading manufacturer and supplier of cardboard products, is delighted to announce that the company has been granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment as a Tradesman to Her Majesty The Queen.

The Warrant took effect from 1st January 2007 and has been approved for the next five years. The appointment came as a result of I. Waterman (Box Makers) Ltd, having been a direct supplier of Archive boxes to the Royal Household since 2001.

The I Waterman (Box Makers) Ltd, name is synonymous with the highest standards, with the company supplying acid-free storage materials to many of the world’s leading museums and archives.

David Waterman, great-grandson of the company’s founder, and current head of the 110-year-old firm, said he was humbled by the award of the Royal Warrant:
“This most prestigious of endorsements is the ultimate affirmation of the quality of our products. From a personal point of view, it is also a tremendous inspiration. We are proud to supply storage products to the Royal Household and delighted that our products are an integral part of the preservation of items which may eventually form a part of this country’s history and heritage. There could be no greater honour or privilege.”

Notes to Editors:
I. Waterman (Box Makers) Limited began as a one-man enterprise in the East End of London in 1897. The company went on to become a respected manufacturer of cardboard products, supplying a wide range of innovative ideas to a worldwide market, a number of which were destined to establish new benchmarks in packaging and transportation solutions.

In the 1990s, I Waterman’s expanded its business to include the manufacture of commercial stationery and storage boxes, drawing on its heritage of innovation and insight to help shape the development of a new generation of products.

In recent years, Waterman’s expertise has been made available to the general public through the Memories and Nostalgia Collection. Made to the same rigorous standards as the rest of the Waterman product range, this growing collection of acid-free boxes and preservation products is designed to keep family mementoes in optimum condition for generations to come.

Today, David Waterman, great-grandson of the company’s founder, continues to run the family business and to pioneer new and ever more ambitious developments.
