The name has also been changed on the Company’s website.

BillerudKorsnäs has simplified its name to Billerud to cater to its international customers. As a leading supplier of virgin fiber-based paper and packaging materials, the name change is fully in line with the company’s strategy to expand into North America and continue driving sustainable growth in global markets. The name has also been changed on the company’s website.

”We are now ready to meet the challenges of the future as one company: Billerud. One year ago, a clear strategic plan was drawn up with the aim of achieving profitable and sustainable sales growth until the year 2030 and growing in North America. Today we change the name to Billerud. The name change is a natural step on our strategic journey”, says Mr. Christoph Michalski, President and CEO.

For us, product superiority is important and the impressive strength of our papers allows customers to use less packaging, save costs and reduce their carbon footprint,” says Mr. Michalski.
