Given our strong record of capital investment to keep our machines modern and flexible, as well as our deep commit­ment to R&D, we are able to bring solutions to the market quickly in all four of our businesses. This year, the following business developments and improvements were made.

Coated Paper Business:

  • Recent machine upgrades have provided yield improvements resulting in cost savings for customers using our 7 pt Somerset gloss and satin.
  • We also doubled capacity on our Flo lightweight web products and increased the optics of our Flo and Opus sheet brands.

Packaging Business:

  • We have extended the basis weight range for LusterCote, a quality C1S label product with excellent printability and performance, complementing our legacy LusterPrint business.
  • We are dedicated to making specialized packaging solutions a larger part of our business and are working on innovative line extensions for launch in 2016.

Release Business:

  • The Release team has several important product changes for this upcoming fiscal year in both its Classics and Ultracast lines to meet evolving customer needs in the fashion apparel, furnishings and auto­motive sectors; we expect exciting growth in this business.

Specialised Cellulose Business:

  • Our Specialised Cellulose team continues to meet the highest standards for this highly technical pulp feedstock used in textile, pharmaceutical and food industries and is looking for ways to penetrate adjacent markets.
