Raflatac and UPM Rafsec merge to form UPM Raflatac

January 24, 2006

Raflatac, one of the world’s leading pressure sensitives suppliers, and UPM Rafsec, a manufacturer of RFID tags and inlays, have merged to form a new business entity, UPM Raflatac. Both have been subsidiaries of UPM, of Finland. The new company’s product and service offering comprises both pressure sensitive label stock and RFID.

“The rebranding of Raflatac and UPM Rafsec reflects UPM’s strong commitment to the label stock and RFID business areas and the combining of UPM Rafsec under the UPM Raflatac brand,” says Heikki Pikkarainen. “UPM Raflatac will be more clearly part of UPM as a whole. The new name enables us to benefit from all the solidity attached to UPM – a name that stands for the world’s leading forest products company,” says Heikki Pikkarainen, President of UPM Raflatac.

“Customers will now be offered an increasingly extensive product range under a single brand,” he says. “UPM Raflatac will continue to supply its customers with the same familiar products and services as formerly provided under the Raflatac and UPM Rafsec brands.”
