We're now leaving Chmielnik on the way to Kielce, where the Polish headquarters of DS Smith PLC is located.
DSS was founded by our grandparents / great-grandparents. Information on the founders and the company and can be found here.
See here for a history of DSS, by Anton Smith.
We met the Marketing Manager, Marta Jotdrzetcza, and took a few group pictures. Marta gave us lanyards with the DS Smith logo as a souvenir of the visit.
Thank you Anton for setting it up. It's an odd feeling that the company that supported our families in days past (and adds a little today so long as the shares continue to rise) is now owned by people who have no idea that this international company was started by two British Jews of Polish descent in a basement in Grays Inn Road.
