UPM Raflatac Announces Film Lamination Line and New Distribution Terminal
TAMPERE, Finland—UPM Raflatac’s new European film lamination line is now fully operational and delivering to label converters. The lamination line doubles UPM Raflatac’s labelstock production capacity for films in the region and further strengthens the company’s position in the growing film labelstock market.
“UPM Raflatac has succeeded excellently with the aim set a few years ago to seek strong growth in films. This sizeable investment in new production capacity shows our continued commitment to serving our customers and meeting their growing needs for high-quality film products,” says Jan-Erik Forsström, senior vice president, Europe.
The new lamination line enables the production of thinner films for the various demanding needs of brand owners in the personal care and beverage industries, among others. The design of the new coating line is founded on proprietary technology with a special emphasis on cleanliness to meet today’s market demand for high-quality filmic pressure sensitive materials.
In addition, at the India Label Show at Pragatit Maidan, New Delhi, UPM Raflatac has announced the opening of a new slitting and distribution terminal in Mumbai, India, next year. With the new terminal, UPM Raflatac will streamline its processes to meet customer demand for shorter delivery times while offering a more diverse product range. The investment supports UPM Raflatac’s goal to provide the best customer service in the industry.
UPM Raflatac offers all the advantages of being both a local and global supplier, tailoring its products to suit local conditions in the region while offering customers and end-users global expertise and functional labelstock qualities that provide the same level of performance worldwide.
