Voith will supply the labeling materials production line at the UPM Changshu mill.

UPM has announced that it has chosen Voith to supply the labeling materials production line at the UPM Changshu mill in China. The agreement covers the main machinery and finishing equipment for the new machine. With the investment, UPM is strengthening its leading global position in labeling materials.
