UPM Raflatac, a Finland-based supplier of self-adhesive label materials, will launch a new slitting and distribution terminal in Santiago, South America in early 2018.
The new terminal will bolster the firm’s service potential by offering an expanded range of paper and film products to the wine and craft beverage segments.
Currently under construction in the Lo Boza industrial sector adjacent to Santiago International Airport, this brand 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 global films SBU and Americas region senior vice president Mark Pollard said: "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.
"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."
