UPM Raflatac has opened a new labelstock slitting and distribution terminal in Kiev, Ukraine. The terminal will supply both film and paper label materials to customers in Ukraine.
“By opening a terminal UPM Raflatac is setting superior service level in this dynamic market. Ukrainian printers will receive customs-cleared, net-width slit materials sold in local currency from a direct supplier,” says Dmitrij Strechin, area sales director, Eastern Europe and Middle East. “We’ll be providing customers with finishing quality according to European standards, fast delivery to each part of this vast country, professional sales and technical support. We’re confident our partners will enjoy real benefits.”
The new Ukraine terminal further strengthens UPM Raflatac’s position in the Eastern European market. During 2009 to 2012, UPM Raflatac has opened a labelstock factory in Poland, and new slitting and distribution terminals in St Petersburg and Moscow in Russia, and Istanbul, Turkey.
