UPM Raflatac opens distribution terminal in St Petersburg

UPM Raflatac has opened a new slitting and distribution terminal in St Petersburg, Russia. The new terminal will supply the Russian labelling market with high-quality film and paper labelstock.

"We're very excited to be the first pressure sensitive manufacturer to open our own distribution facility in Russia. This investment signals our commitment to the Russian market, where it will significantly improve our service capabilities. Our customers can now enjoy shorter delivery times, smaller order sizes and a wider range of products - each being essential to success in today's challenging economic climate," says Tapio Kolunsarka, Senior Vice President of UPM Raflatac in Europe.

UPM Raflatac has recently completed a global development programme incorporating new production facilities in the USA and China, and a brand new production and logistics centre in Wroclaw, Poland.
