Pankaboard announces first appearance at RosUpack 2014 in Moscow

/INS. Finnish speciality cartonboard producer Pankaboard has announced that it is to exhibit at this year’s RosUpack exhibition for the first time, marking the first appearance of its Russian sales team, following the opening of its new branch sales office in St Petersburg in March this year.

The show will see the company exhibit and display information about its innovative and diverse speciality paperboard product ranges, which includes folding boxboard as well its uncoated speciality boards.

Pankaboard’s presence at RosUpack underlines the commitment to the Russian market, and forms part of its plans for growth and development in the Russian packaging sector throughout 2014 and beyond.

Commenting on their appearance at the show, and what customers can expect to see exhibited on the stand, Pankaboard’s Vice-President for Sales and Marketing, Christer Nordman, stated, “RosUpack exhibition offers us a perfect forum to further introduce the company and its products to the packaging and converting industry in Russia and CIS. The exhibition gives us a great opportunity to reach a wide audience and to catch the attention of new potential customers, which might have until now only little knowledge of what is available from Pankaboard. For example, as a new development we can proudly present a compostable solution (PankaPlex) for the food service industry.”

Members of the Pankaboard Russian sales team, including Regional Sales Director, Vladimir Pushilin will be available on the stand to welcome and discuss any customer enquiries, as well as being able to provide detailed information about the company’s diverse and unique product range and product availability.

With a history of cartonboard production dating back to over 100 years, the mill has developed a reputation for production of high quality cartonboard products, focusing the production on high substance carton boards and uncoated speciality boards. This makes Pankaboard a unique supplier on the market place.

In consumer packaging, Pankaboard’s coated folding boxboard products are highly recommended for use in food, luxury beverage and heath care packaging. Uncoated speciality paperboards are optimal for various food service and display products. Due to the high surface smoothness the uncoated products are also widely used as lamination base for different foils.

The Pankaboard sales team and information on its products can be found at 1st HALL of RosUpack on stand A103.
