Ahlstrom-Munksjö hosts a Capital Markets Day for investors and analysts today in Helsinki. At the event we give further insight into the performance of our businesses and growth opportunities as well as discuss the company’s transformation and innovation capabilities.

The key takeaways from the event include:

  •  Transformative initiatives are well underway - significant organic and acquisition driven growth
  • Good profitability in many businesses – measures to address underperforming segments
  •  All businesses are operating in growing markets and are well positioned to benefit from opportunities
  •  Value proposition is based on innovation, quality and service

We reached critical size last year through the merger of Ahlstrom and Munksjö that broadened our product portfolio and strengthened our capability to innovate and invest,” says Hans Sohlström, President and CEO of Ahlstrom-Munksjö. “We have recently announced two strategic acquisitions and several organic growth investments to reinforce our leadership in sustainable and innovative fiber-based solutions. These transactions and initiatives will truly transform the company.”
