Loparex opens sales offices in Japan and Thailand

June 13, 2006

Loparex Group, a manufacturer of siliconized release liners and speciality papers, is strengthening its presence in the Asia-Pacific region. New sales offices have recently been opened in Japan and Thailand.

Loparex Japan KK started operations June 1. “The opening of this new company means that Loparex is now fully separated from UPM-Kymmene, and all Loparex product sales in Japan are handled through our own sales office,” says Yasuyoshi Kawabe, sales director. “Having our own sales structure in Japan is of high importance for Loparex. We want to be able to develop our operations locally and with long-term thinking, and to ensure that our Japanese customers will get the best possible service also in the future.”

In Thailand, Loparex sales are handled in Bangkok by Tanarrato Tanaka.

Loparex, which has no central headquarters, operates manufacturing plants in the USA, Finland, the Netherlands, England, China, and (through joint venture) India.
