About Us......

Paul White started trading in 1974 selling paper bags to market traders in the North of England.  He then added Christmas paper and cards to his products and bought a van to move stock around.

With his customer base quickly growing, in November 1979 Paul opened his first wholesale cash and carry branch on East Street in Leeds.  Giving great value to his customers was his main goal, along with carrying a very wide range of products.  Paul White Ltd was officially added to companies house register in June 1985.

It wasn't long before a larger warehouse was needed and Paul relocated to a 45,000 sq. ft. premises on Upper Accommodation Road (we're still here to this day).  Branches in Nottingham and Gateshead soon followed.

Having outgrown it's premises in Nottingham, Darran O'Neill and his team moved in 2012 to a 20,000 sq. ft double building location on Dabell Avenue on the Blenheim Industrail Estate where they now have a whole building dedicated to party supplies.
