Mohawk and Fedrigoni to Expand Partnership and Distribution of Specialty Papers in North America
] In September 2022, Mohawk Fine Papers, Inc., North America’s largest privately owned manufacturer of fine papers and envelopes, and the Fedrigoni Group, the leading global player in the manufacture of high added value specialty papers for luxury packaging and other creative applications, premium wine labels and self-adhesive materials, announced that they had entered into a manufacturing agreement to expand reach of specialty papers globally.
Mohawk and Fedrigoni are pleased to share the next step in the evolution of their partnership. Mohawk will be the North American distribution partner for Fedrigoni Specialty Papers, effective July 2023.
Mohawk’s distribution partners, and community of creatives and printers throughout North America, will have access to the wide Fedrigoni creative portfolio (with the exception of Fedrigoni digital papers, distributed exclusively by GPA), with special focus on supporting Fedrigoni’s Materia Viva (a vast collection of high-quality, high recycled content papers) and Sirio Pearl (pulp-colored papers and boards with a pearlescent surface) collections, which Mohawk is committed to having stocked and inventoried in North America.
“Many exciting details will come with the launch of our growing partnership and the opportunity to bring this stunning collection of Fedrigoni papers to the North American market,” remarks Melissa Stevens, Chief Revenue Officer of Mohawk.
“We are delighted to announce that, following our partnership agreement, Fedrigoni creative papers will now be distributed in the US by Mohawk Papers. We strongly believe that Mohawk’s long-term knowledge with key merchants will boost Fedrigoni capability to promote its specialty papers in the creative community and better meet all needs of image-conscious clients in the North American market,” states Ilan Schinazi, Chief Commercial Officer Fedrigoni Paper.
Shared core values of craftsmanship, innovation, and sustainability make this distribution partnership both a natural extension of their existing agreements, and a valuable opportunity for both organizations.
