Environmental Business Products (EBP) has diversified to form the EBP Group, of which EBP is the leading operating business.
The newly formed group, which is actively expanding throughout Europe, will now comprise EBP as well as TAL Papers and Environmental Collections.
The former managing director of EBP, Pat Stead becomes group chief executive while Aleem Hosein, a ten year veteran of the company has been promoted to the role of managing director of EBP.

It donates over £750,000 a year to charities as a result of these recycling schemes and has plans to increase this to over £1 million a year by the end of 2007.
