Finnish paper company UPM Raflatac has announced the opening of a new labelstock slitting and distribution terminal in Kiev, Ukraine, which will supply both film and paper label materials to Ukrainian customers.

UPM Raflatac area sales director, Eastern Europe and Middle East Dmitrij Strechin said the company is setting its service level in the dynamic market, by opening a new terminal.

"We’ll be providing customers with finishing quality according to European standards, fast delivery to each part of this vast country, professional sales and technical support. We’re confident our partners will enjoy real benefits," Strechin added.
