Lombard The Paper People

In 1969, when most are thinking of retiring, Alexander and Madeleine Lombard - both in their 60’s - established LOMBARD The Paper People with their youngest son Claude, in the shed of their Box Hill home. From the beginning, LOMBARD The Paper People revolutionised the paper industry by pioneering new methods and issues that have now become standard industry practice. The company is a pioneer in the support of ecological and environmental awareness causes such as “Save the Whales”, recycling news print, and were the first to supply photodegradable and biodegradable plastics.

Since school age Claude’s daughters Danielle, Michelle and Anouk have been involved in the business. In 2010 the company established the “Family Board”, made up of Claude & Susan Lombard, daughters Danielle Lombard, Anouk Lombard, Michelle Kevill and son-in-law Andrew Kevill, with each member handling different parts of the organisation.

Even though Claude is the force behind the company, he has passed on his vast knowledge to all the members of his family to ensure the prosperity and continued growth of the company.
