Jan. 17, 2024 - UPM Raflatac, a global supplier of sustainable self-adhesive paper and film products, plans to open a new state-of-the-art slitting and distribution terminal in the Toronto, Canada, metropolitan area. The new facility will improve service and quality to UPM Raflatac's customers in Eastern Canada and Northeastern U.S., while strengthening relationships in the region.
"We have made significant investments in our production capabilities to meet the demand for self-adhesive paper and film products. The recent decision to expand our global network of terminals with a brand-new facility in Canada is a testament to our long history of enabling our customers to grow," said Morgan Dundas, Sales Director, UPM Raflatac Americas.
The Toronto area terminal will house the newest generation equipment and a large warehousing space to enable storage of high-quality film and paper laminates, as well as specialty products. By having a large inventory of products ready to be slit and shipped, UPM Raflatac can offer customers more flexibility, customization, and efficiency in their orders. This also reduces the risk of stock-outs, delays, and quality issues that may arise from insufficient warehousing capacity.
"UPM Raflatac's ability to stock more material locally will optimize lead times, enhance service, and help meet the diverse and dynamic needs for our customers in Eastern Canada and Northeastern U.S.," Dundas added.
Construction on the new facility is underway. UPM Raflatac expects to begin production in late summer 2024.
UPM Raflatac offers high-quality self-adhesive paper and film products including label materials, graphics solutions and removable self-adhesive products.
