This acquisition accelerates growth and expands the product offering of UPM Raflatac. The transaction is expected to be closed latest in Q3, 2022. With this acquisition, UPM continues in its strategic path, adding to the organic growth in the attractive specialty packaging material value chain, and strengthens the company’s transformation and long-term value creation in one of its three spearheads of growth.

The combination with UPM Raflatac’s efficient supply chain and sales and distribution network will enable further growth. We look forward to offering a stronger product portfolio to our current and new customers,’ said Antti Jääskeläinen, Executive Vice President, UPM Raflatac.
