UPM Raflatac Opens New Slitting and Distribution Terminal in Moscow

UPM Raflatac's new Moscow terminal will supply the local labeling market with high-quality film and paper labelstock.

Sept. 29, 2011 - UPM Raflatac announced that it has opened a new slitting and distribution terminal in Moscow, Russia, which will supply the local labeling market with high-quality film and paper labelstock.

The terminal started operations in September and will serve customers in the Moscow region.

"Covering the number of customers in the Moscow region and providing the strictly required 24-hour delivery are obvious reasons for having a terminal close to Moscow," said Dmitrij Strechin, Country Manager, Russia and Kazakhstan. “Moscow is a highly competitive area for both printers and suppliers of self-adhesive laminate, so operations need to be in accordance with very high quality and service standards.”

According to UPM, the Moscow terminal complements UPM Raflatac’s service and logistics network in Russia, comprising a slitting and distribution terminal in St. Petersburg and sales offices in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
