UPM Raflatac to open new terminal in Washington early next year

RPM Raflatac announces plans to open a new state-of-the-art terminal in Vancouver, Washington early next year. The new facility will strengthen UPM Raflatac’s network of terminals across North America and expand the company’s slitting and distribution capacity. This investment will also further improve product quality, benefiting customers across the western US and Canada.

“We chose Vancouver, Washington as the site of this new state-of-the-art facility because of its strategic location to best service our expanding customer base, as well as the growing market in the Pacific Northwest and in California,” stated Tim Kirchen, Senior Vice President, UPM Raflatac, Americas.

UPM Raflatac is continually investing in operational advancements that will enable the success of their customers and meet the growing demand for pressure sensitive labels. Their new terminal will house multiple slitters and a large warehousing space to enable storage of high-quality film and paper laminates, as well as specialty products.

Construction on the new facility is underway, and production is expected to begin in the spring of 2023.
