Ahlstrom-Munksjö will display its global release liner capabilities at LabelExpo Europe from September 24-27 in Brussels, Belgium. In the release liner business, Ahlstrom-Munksjö will increasingly focus on strengthening long term business relationships, by delivering customer value through product, service, innovation and sustainability.

Renewability and power of natural fibres will be the company's themes at the world's largest labeling show, said Ahlstrom-Munksjö in a press release.

"Product performance and quality are the first cornerstones of our value proposition. Our customers need to count on liners that run perfectly on high-speed coaters and which can be trusted in the most demanding technical applications. For this reason, we work closely with them to design or customise the most suitable liner characteristics, but we also continuously invest in asset upgrades that will sustain and advance product quality level," said Marco Troglia, vice president, Release Liners.

Through diverse release liner technologies, Ahlstrom-Munksjö offers the most comprehensive range of paper substrates, matching the needs of all release liner segments, from PSA (pressure sensitive adhesives) labeling to specialty tapes, hygiene and medical to PSA graphics, composites to food and baking.

Multiple release liner manufacturing sites in Europe, North America and South America also put the company in a good position to further raise its service levels.

"We aim to serve our customers in all regions with flexibility and proactivity, which should not be limited by our larger size. That is enabled by highly efficient operations that provide back-up opportunities and security of supply, and most importantly by developing a customer-centric culture in a lean and agile organisation," said Ludovica Peretto, head of sales & marketing, Release Liners.

Moreover, growing bigger means accessing a broader array of competences and R&D capabilities, with new opportunities that derive from cross-fertilisation between businesses or geographies. The company's new R&D organisation combines solid fibre and chemistry competences with a strong business focus, and explores any fibre, process and coating option to develop next generation release liners.

Sustainability is always a high priority for Ahlstrom-Munksjö. Since 2019, an expanded eco-design methodology is embedded in the innovation process, and all product development projects go through an assessment to determine if and in what dimensions they will provide a more sustainable solution than the existing ones.

Ahlstrom-Munksjö has been awarded with three consecutive Gold ratings from Ecovadis, a platform designed to evaluate supplier CSR performance in global supply chains. Ecovadis methodology, which is already adopted by thousands of companies, including over 300 large multinationals, placed Ahlstrom-Munksjö among the top 1 per cent most sustainable companies assessed, regardless of their sector of activity.

Ahlstrom-Munksjö is a global leader in fibre-based materials, supplying innovative and sustainable solutions to its customers. Its offering includes filter materials, release liners, food and beverage processing materials, decor papers, abrasive and tape backings, electrotechnical paper, glass fibre materials, medical fiber materials and solutions for diagnostics as well as a range of specialty papers for industrial and consumer end-uses.
