MUNKSJÖ OYJ, PRESS RELEASE, 2 July 2015 10.00 a.m. CEST
Munksjö invests in a new storage centre at its specialty paper mill in
Rottersac, France, to further improve customer service
Munksjö, a world-leading manufacturer of advanced paper products, steps up
initiatives to support activities of its Rottersac Mill, France: investment in
a totally new storage centre, improvement of production equipment and
implementation of a customer service centre for Europe.
The company has announced an investment project in the building of a totally
new 9,100 m² storage centre. Almost all output is to be stored on-site. This
investment will ease logistic flows, reduce carbon foot print and enable a
better quality control of packaging, leading to a better service to our
customers. The new facility will be ready in 2016.
The Group also invested in 2014 in the mill production assets through new
equipment combining two coating surface devices (size press and film press).
This state-of-the art technology enables a specific coating on the two sides of
the paper, opening new possibilities for new product development. For instance,
it allows for a better paper quality or specific functionalities to meet the
increasingly demanding market expectations.
The new European customer service centre will strengthen Munksjö's
competitiveness by grouping sales support to one hub per Business Area, and for
Graphics and Packaging it will be located at the Rottersac Mill close to the
production. This new organisation will enable flexibility in resources and
teams enabling even better customer service.
"These initiatives and investments translate the willingness of the Group to
support activities and dynamism of the Rottersac Mill. Developing new products,
improving quality and customer service are vital to maintain a leading market
position in a very competitive environment." comments Thierry Chassagne,
Rottersac Mill Manager.
The Rottersac Mill employs approximately 200 employees and is part of the
Business Area Graphics and Packaging. This production site is specialized in
the manufacturing of specialty papers for food and non-food flexible packaging,
repositionable notes, envelop windows and other industrial applications. In
everyday life, these papers are for instance used for baking, packaging of
sweets or cheese, to name a few. The site is certified according to ISO
9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, OHSAS 18001:2007, FSC® and PEFC Chain-of-Custody.
