The premiere at the Packaging Première


Launch of the GC1 Atelier folding box board 1 from Sappi in Italy

Innovative and sustainable packaging solutions: with Sappi boards and papers, both aspects  scan be implemented in a variety of ways. At the Packaging Première, the globally active manufacturer will be presenting its Atelier double-coated folding box board 1 for the first time in Italy. Visitors to the stand shared with Plastic Stratosfera (C56/D57) will also find out more about the premium paperboard Algro Design, the Fusion Topliner for corrugated board applications and various shopping bag papers.


After only two editions, the Packaging Première has already become a benchmark on the Italian trade fair calendar, attracting close to 5,000 visitors to Milan. Sappi will be exhibiting its selected products at the Plastic Stratosfera stand. "We are very pleased to be on site together with our partner for the third time. And this year we're celebrating a premiere: our new Atelier folding box board 1 (GC1) will be shown for the first time in Italy", says Andrea Riva, Sales Manager for Italy and Spain at Sappi.  


"brilliance meets function"

The new Atelier folding box board samples, which Sappi is presenting for the first time at this trade fair in Italy, are hot off the press. The manufacturer is even talking about a new dimension in folding box board with an unprecedented specific volume. Thanks to the multi-layer concept, the virgin fibre board is bright white and exceptionally stiff and firm – two indispensable properties for folding cartons. With this folding box board 1 (FBB1), Sappi is offering its customers a high-quality cardboard that can be produced in FSC® or PEFC™ quality on request and further processed to an impressive end result.  


Premium boards for premium products

With its three variants, Algro Design is already very well established among many branded product manufacturers. The solid bleached board (SBB) stands out with its vivid colour reproduction, high contrast and ideal running properties. Depending on the variant, the reverse side is without, with single- or double-coated, and the finishing options are manifold. This enables designers, agencies and branded product manufacturers to set product-specific accents with their packaging. "The Packaging Première is an excellent opportunity to meet the main players in the Italian packaging industry. We have taken advantage of this opportunity since the first show to work with Sappi to showcase innovative and sustainable packaging solutions", says Virginia Parma, Managing Director of Plastic Stratosfera, underscoring the significance of this event, which will take place from 28 to 30 May.
