UPM Raflatac officially opened its label stock slitting and distribution terminal in Santiago, Chile, with a celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony Jan. 10.
This new terminal allows UPM Raflatac to offer an expanded range of innovative and sustainable paper, film and special products to customers —particularly in the wine and craft beverage segments — in Chile and surrounding markets including Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay and Peru. The facility features two meter-wide slitting capabilities, as well as trimless offerings on selected materials.
"UPM Raflatac has the highest quality product portfolio on the market combined with world-class service, and we are happy to now be able to offer them to the Chilean and regional pressure-sensitive label markets," says Mark Pollard, senior vice president, Global Films SBU & Americas Region, UPM Raflatac. "We look forward to bringing the latest innovations to our trusted partners and growing our businesses together."
The new terminal joins UPM Raflatac's Americas Terminal Network, which includes facilities throughout North and South America.
