UPM Raflatac to Open Facility in Chile

MILLS RIVER, NC | UPM Raflatac reports that as part of its increased expansion in the Latin American pressure-sensitive label market, it will be opening a new slitting and distribution terminal in Santiago, Chile, in early 2018. This new terminal reportedly will allow the company to improve its service capabilities and offer an expanded range of paper and film products to customers in the Chilean market, particularly in the wine and craft beverage segments.

Currently under construction in the Lo Boza industrial sector adjacent to Santiago International Airport, this new facility will join UPM Raflatac's growing Americas Terminal Network, which includes a number of facilities throughout North and South America. The new terminal will feature two meter-wide slitting capabilities, and the company plans to have Trimless offerings on select materials.

"UPM Raflatac is proud to expand its operations in South America, and our new terminal demonstrates our commitment to the Chilean market and surrounding region," says Mark Pollard, senior VP, Global Films SBU & Americas Region, UPM Raflatac. "The wine market continues to flourish, and the new terminal gives us the capability to expand our local high quality product portfolio and combine it with best-in-class service. We look forward to further growth opportunities both here and around the world."
