UPM Raflatac Opens Distribution Units in India, Turkey
June 29, 2010 - UPM Raflatac said that it has opened two new slitting and distribution terminals, in Istanbul, Turkey and Bangalore, India. The new terminals will supply local labelling markets with high-quality film and paper labelstock.
According to UPM, the Bangalore terminal complements UPM Raflatac’s already substantial Southeast Asian and South Asian logistics network, comprising a labelstock factory in Johor, Malaysia and terminals in Jakarta in Indonesia, Bangkok, Thailand and Mumbai, India.
“India is a promising market for us, having the highest growth percentage for labelstock in the Asia-Pacific region,” says Santosh Kumar, Area Sales Director, South Asia, UPM Raflatac. “Through the new facility, our customers especially in South India will receive their orders faster and have a wider range of products at their disposal.”
The Istanbul terminal answers growing demand for UPM Raflatac label materials in Turkey, and is in line with the company’s strategy of gradually expanding its market share in this rapidly growing region, UPM said.
