February is likely to be a busy time for UK manufacturer Whitefurze who will start the month preparing for a fourth appearance at Paperworld Frankfurt (hall 30., stand E19), the world's leading exhibition for office supplies. This will be followed promptly by further appearances at two of Europe's largest exhibitions; Spring Fair, Birmingham (12F10-G11) where the company's full range of housewares, food storage, storage and garden products will be showcased, & Ambiente, Frankfurt (6.0 C30) where an exciting range of storage, food storage and housewares products will be on display.

2018 is also going to be an important year for the business as Whitefurze is celebrating 40 years in the industry and to mark this achievement are currently undergoing a major refresh of its branding and image.
