Iggesund Paperboard Expanding Services for Eastern Europe, Russia

Iggesund Paperboard's terminal in Riga has been operational since April and the sales office in Russia will be inaugurated in July.

June 10, 2015 - Iggesund Paperboard announced that it is expanding its services for Eastern Europe by establishing a new freight terminal in Riga, Latvia, and a sales office in Moscow to boost Russian sales.

The newly established units are a step forward in Iggesund’s long-term plan to enhance its delivery services on a global scale, the company said.

"We need to be near the customer both in terms of deliveries and other services required by today's customers," said Rikard Papp, Director Asia Pacific & Merchants Europe at Iggesund.

Due to Iggesund’s interest in the Russian markets, the company will, for the second time, be taking part in the RosUpack exhibition in Moscow.

"The intense interest we met with last year convinced us that we should establish a sales office for the Russian market. It is a major market that definitely has room for a high-end product like Invercote," Papp said.

Iggesund Paperboard’s terminal in Riga has been operational since April and the sales office in Russia will be inaugurated in July.

Iggesund Paperboard is part of the Swedish forest industry group Holmen. Iggesund operates two mills — Workington Mill in the UK and Iggesund Mill in Sweden — that produce paperboard brands: Invercote and Incada. To learn more, please visit: www.iggesund.com
