Walki and Paptic share a strong sustainability mindset, which served as the basis of the collaboration.
“We are confident that our partnership with Walki will significantly improve our customer service level, enhance the material availability and it will also increase the offering of converted Paptic® materials available on the market,” says Katja Jokiaho, Chief Sales Officer, Paptic Ltd. “Walki is well placed to supply a wide variety of converting solutions and we are very excited to offer them our full range of sustainable materials. I would like to thank the Walki team for straightforward negotiations and I am looking forward to our co-operation.
