Recently launched, albeit with over 50 years of experience, we pride ourselves on being the trusted supply partner for Medical Device Manufacturers, Medical Packaging Converters and Paper Converters for other industries.

As Henry Cooke Papers, we were founding members of the SBA (then ESPA). As Pelta Medical Papers, we are proud to continue this tradition.

Previously trading as BillerudKorsnäs Beetham Ltd, part of BillerudKorsnäs AB, we launched in November 2021 as an independent business.

Experts at what we do

Based in Beetham, UK, our 145 strong technical team provides an extensive range of sterile barrier paper that delivers on quality and value and more than meets all required regulatory standards.


Consistently and reliably manufacturing performance barrier papers for converters and medical device manufacturers, we put patient safety at the core of everything we do.


A hub of manufacturing for over a century, the Beetham Waterhouse Mill has been producing paper in South Cumbria since its conversion from corn grinding in 1833.

The Mill

Today, the Beetham Mill operates two almost identical paper machines and four creping machines consistently delivering an extensive range of highest-quality sterile barrier paper.

Achieving the highest standards

As developers of the first steam-sterilisable papers in 1969, and founding members of the Sterile Barrier Association, we ensure that our diverse product range more than meets all the necessary regulatory standards.

Proud Members of the Sterile Barrier Association

As Henry Cooke Ltd we were a founder member of the Sterile barrier Association and we are proud to continue this tradition.
