What we offer
Iggesund Paperboard is an organisation with about 1,670 employees and we are part of the Holmen Group, a Swedish forest industry group with a long-term and sustainable approach. Our activities include sales, technical service, marketing, logistics, finance, production and engineering. The objective is to work as close to our customers as possible.
To facilitate doing business with us we provide you with a single contact point: the sales agent nearest you.
Whatever assistance you require, our sales staff will be able to advise you or put you in contact with the appropriate expert in our organisation. Our strength lies not only in our own in-house expertise; we also have access to the entire resources of the Holmen Group as well as contacts with many external specialist trade and technical organisations.
Whether the information you need is commercial or technical, you can obtain it through your contact in our sales organisation. We may not have all the answers but we are certain to have access to someone who does!
Iggesund Paperboard’s sales organisation is based on local presence backed up with a coordination centre for the European market in Amsterdam. Invercote and Incada are also sold by number of selected merchants and agents. They all have direct links through a sales order processing system to our coordinating sales offices in Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Singapore, New York and to our production units in Sweden and the UK. This facilitates the rapid flow of information on delivery lead times, product availability and order processing.
Our sheeting facilities close to our main markets assist in reducing lead times and rapid supply of small orders.
All markets have technical service specialists on hand to advise printers and end users on technical matters. They are recruited and trained with the objective of ensuring that they understand as much about our customers’ business as they do about our own. Their in-depth knowledge, not just about paperboard, but also about printing processes and packaging technology, is invaluable for both pro-active support and troubleshooting.
Our market-based technicians are complemented by the equivalent functions at the mills and by extensive laboratory and research facilities at our production units in Sweden and the UK.
Contacts with other specialist trade and professional bodies, on whose expertise we are able to draw, further increase our knowledge of the market.
The Iggesund mill produces solid bleached board under the Invercote label, the Workington mill folding box board under the label of Incada. The Iggesund mill also encompasses an operation for extrusion coating and lamination of our paperboard products in nearby Strömsbruk.
Although both manufacturing units are operated as separate profit centres, we make use of the obvious synergies between them. Workington uses chemical pulp from the Iggesund mill, Ströms Bruk uses substrates from both mills, and so on.
Iggesund Paperboard has its head office in Iggesund, from where the activities of all the operating units are coordinated in order to achieve optimal results in terms of marketing, finance and sales support.
