Strategy

We are our customers’ first choice for fiber-based materials.

We are in the business of providing innovative fiber-based materials with a function in everyday life. The needs of our customers are affected by end-user behavior, which challenges us to constantly develop and improve fiber-based material solutions. Global trends - growing global population and scarcity of resources, increased demand for greener and resource-efficient materials, emerging needs in healthcare, changes in demographics and urbanization - faced by our customers steer our product offering and provide us with a wealth of opportunities.

We truly want to create value in a way that is socially and environmentally sound.
