    Our History

    Our History

    The business was founded in 1984 selling toilet rolls and kitchen rolls to independent retailers on Merseyside operating from a corner shop in the shadow of Goodison Park, Liverpool that acted as a mini warehouse. As trade increased the business invested in its first warehouse a year later. Since then it has progressed from those humble beginnings to a major relocation in 2012; into a new purpose-built warehouse located in the flagship Wirral International Business Park.

    We offer a large range of paper products available under one roof, with over 120 products. Retailers, wholesalers and professional businesses can mix the product they take, be it branded, unbranded, own label, clearance or core. We can supply all the paper brands in one consolidated delivery, usually promoted and often at cheaper prices than available from manufacturers without the need for purchasing excessive volumes. Regal has developed its own paper goods brand called Designer, created specifically for independent retailers and wholesalers. Our core philosophy for success is founded on building strong, positive relationships with all our customers, and developing a high level of trust through excellent service.

    As well as paper we offer household, health & beauty and grocery products. We deliver using our own fleet of vehicles and if the order is outside of our delivery area we organise a transport company to deliver at no extra cost. We produce a monthly colour brochure called Trading Post which is created completely in-house, full of fantastic promotions and new products in the market. This allows us to be very flexible with our content and add products right up to the last minute ensuring our customers get the only the very best offers available.

    Since 1998 the company has been a member of Unitas Wholesale (formerly Today's Group), the largest independent buying group in the UK, with a buying power in excess of £5.7 billion. It’s an association which Regal are proud of and one which enables us to provide the best prices from all the major suppliers. Unitas Wholesale also has a number of exciting own brand ranges too with an eye-catching, modern range with appealing price points, including their own label paper products, of which Regal are the main distributor.

    Regal have invested hugely in IT infrastructure and this technology has played a major role in our progress. Using the latest hardware and software for warehouse management and stock control ensures our customers receive fast and efficient service and high stock availability. Our easy to use website is convenient for ordering all of our products with the added benefit of daily exclusive web promotions.
