has announced the opening of a regional facility in the Chicago area. Combined with current offices in Portland, OR and Miami, FL, the Swedish company says the new location represents “a significant expansion of customer service, support and supply capabilities in the North American market.” It also reflects the current strategy of BillerudKorsnäs to grow its business in the U.S. and Canada. BillerudKorsnäs provides paper, fluting, liners, paperboard materials and advanced technologies to brand owners and converters.
Peter Malmqvist, marketing director for the Americas, recently relocated to the U.S. and will be managing marketing efforts from the Chicago office. He previously served as the corporate marketing director in Sweden.
