Asia Pulp & Paper expands sales network in Canada

Asia Pulp & Paper Canada Expands Sales Network to Eastern Canada. According to the announcement, APP’s new sales network will directly ship to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Prince Edward Island starting June 2017.

The company’s portfolio of paper and paperboard products from Indonesia and China, include wood-free coated and uncoated text and cover, opaque printing paper, gloss and silk paper, copy papers, and packaging boards for all types of printing and packaging needs.

David Chin, president of APP Canada, commented:

The market for paper products, especially for food and other packaging, continues to grow at a global rate of approximately 4.3% per cent. But some of the smaller markets, that traditionally had less demand, were still not being serviced to the same level as larger centres and had a hard time procuring cost-effective products.

Customers have come to expect quality paper products that perform well during the printing process but that also exceed the environmental standards demanded by the end user.

The type of businesses from which we will see the biggest business opportunity, are the ones that cannot forgo the white and bright paper that comes from virgin fibre but want a biodegradable product to stand apart from their competition.

APP Canada carries the ProPrint, Inspira, Enova, Paperline and Zenith brands. This distribution expansion to Canada’s east coast comes on the heels of another recent announcement by the company about a sales network expansion to Saskatchewan. Currently, the company has offices and warehousing facilities in Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia and Manitoba.

APP Canada is part of the APP group and is the leading importer/distributor of printing papers from APP’s mills in Indonesia and China.

Earlier Asia Pulp & Paper Group received the 2016 Sustainability Reporting Award.
