North America Specialty Solutions

North America Specialty Solutions is among the leading suppliers in attractive and high growth specialty paper segments. The business area provides highly specialized materials that protect and enhance the performance of a wide range of industrial and consumer applications.

The materials are predominately designed to the customers’ needs rather than generic industry standards and customer relationships are long-standing and focused on quality and service. The product portfolio is less exposed to economic cycles given its high share of sales to more cycle-resistant end-markets such as food and retail.

Industrial & Technical

Backings and barriers for the technical material used in residential and commercial construction, tape applications and metal and glass manufacturing

Food Processing & Packaging
