BillerudKorsnäs is simplifying its name to Billerud to cater to its international customers. As a 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. …”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 to grow in North America. The name change is a natural step on our strategic journey”, says Christoph Michalski, CEO. …Billerud’s roots and heritage in the forest and paper industry go back more than 150 years and the company has had several different names. Billerud has nine production units in Sweden, USA, and Finland with around 5 800 employees in over 13 countries.
