Metsä Board launched clarified product and service portfolio. The company presented its offering of premium paperboards and related services, with focus on contributing to even more sustainable, safe and efficient packaging, now found under one Metsä Board family.
According to the announcement, as part of the launch Metsä Board renewed the product names of its premium quality lightweight paperboards to bring the offering to customers in a clearer way that makes product selection even easier. The three service areas – Packaging Analysis & Design, Availability Services and Technical Expertise and R&D – complement the products and provide collaboration initiatives for joint development with customers to develop better and lighter packaging.

“Consumers expect better experiences with less environmental impact. Brand owners are looking at how to optimise packaging to be more sustainable, safer and lighter in weight. We are known for our pioneering expertise in high-quality, lightweight paperboards and are committed to improving further. Now with our unified product portfolio and targeted services we can provide even stronger support to our customers to jointly improve sustainability and efficiency of packaging throughout the value chain.”
While the company’s offering and product names will be harmonised, the products and their specifications will remain unchanged.
