UPM Raflatac to begin work on Polish plant
UPM Raflatac, the Finland based manufacturer of pressure sensitive materials, has received an operations permit to construct its new self-adhesive label materials factory in Kobierzyce, about 10 kilometers from Wroclaw in the southwestern part of Poland. The €90 million factory investment was announced in April.
The new production and logistics center will serve the growing Eastern European markets and meet increasing demand for filmic label materials and products with hot-melt adhesives Europe-wide. Construction of the factory will begin in August; start-up is planned for late 2008.
The new UPM Raflatac factory will feature proprietary technology both in coating and finishing. It will supply a wide range of high-quality film and paper labelstock products with water based acrylic and hot-melt adhesives.
