Raflatac completes Europe line, plans Indian facility

December 12, 2006

UPM Raflatac has announced that it will open a new slitting and distribution terminal in Mumbai, India, next year. With the new terminal, UPM Raflatac says it will streamline its processes to meet customer demand for shorter delivery times while offering a more diverse product range.

The company also announced that its new European film lamination line is now fully operational and delivering to label converters. The lamination line doubles labelstock production capacity for films in the region, according to 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 an emphasis on cleanliness.

“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 Forsström.

UPM Raflatac, headquartered in Finland, is a global supplier of pressure sensitive labelstock for a wide variety of needs in product and information labelling. The company is active in the development and high volume production of radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and inlays. UPM Raflatac has around 2,300 employees and its sales in 2005 were approximately €860 million.
