Increasing service level
by collaboration

​International Paper & Plastic (IPP) is a sheeting merchant operating in Belgium and the Netherlands. Metsä Board has been supplying folding boxboard to IPP for many years. Metsä Board's commitment to sustainability in all of its operations is of great importance to IPP as sustainability is very high on the company's agenda.


"Forest certification is important to IPP and the board Metsä Board supplies to us is always certified. The light weight of MetsäBoard Prime FBB Bright is also valued by our customers," said Jeroen Kuiper, Director at IPP.

Metsä Board delivers big reels in full truck loads, which makes the logistics efficient and sustainable. IPP stocks these large reels and cuts them into sheets of bespoke sizes upon request. Jeroen Kuiper concludes: "By cooperating with Metsä Board we can increase the service levels we are able to provide to our customers including offering advice, responding quickly and shorter lead times. Customers can order smaller quantities, which reduces their stock levels, saving space and working capital."

IPP's offering also includes lamination, extrusion and coating of paperboards.
