UPM Raflatac has recently introduced significant structural changes in Europe and invested in new production and distribution capacity to strengthen its service coverage in growing label markets in Eastern Europe. A new slitting and distribution terminal has been opened in St Petersburg, Russia, positioning UPM Raflatac as the first labelstock producer with its own distribution in Russia.
