Walki has opened its new packaging production plant in Svetogorsk, Russia. The local presence offers an excellent platform for the Finnish group to enter the market with new products; the next step, already in the pipeline, is to establish a sales office in Moscow.
The new plant, equipped with extrusion and printing capacity, is located at the ZAO “International Paper” pulp and paper mill. It enhances Walki’s long standing partnership supplying ream wrapping for International Paper Russia’s vetocopy and Ballet office paper brands.
Timo Finnström, vice president paper packaging and sourcing, comments: “The Svetogorsk plant constitutes an important part of Walki’s long-term commitment in Russia. We have a range of products that in due time could be very interesting for the Russian market. A good example is flexible packaging applications.”
