Proudly we announce that we came third in the Publishing Prize and also wish to congratulate the winners in the same category as we competed in, KF and Volvo Car Group.
In September we announced that our Annual Report had been nominated for The Publishing Prize, an annual juried contest for films, websites, newspapers, magazines, books and other printed matter in English, Norwegian or Swedish. We have particiated before and been nominated 3 times, winner 2 times as well as been rewarded with an extraordinary prize for the design and visual content.
Over the years, we have collaborated with the art director Andrew Cowie, who has been our loyal companion and guide in having the work of various artists decorate our financial result. Andrew has, and are still, challenging us with ideas and we are greatly impressed by his versatility and design creativity. This year, we believe that Andrew has done something really extraordinary – we are featuring a very characteristic French entrepreneur in art, named Jean-Claude Floch.
In 1967, after the post-war reconstruction period, the company was originally established in Tokyo to introduce industrial products of French origin into Japan. Over the years, the company has managed to navigate and quickly adapt to the prevailing circumstances and the challenges of the surrounding world and has constructively evolved with oil crisis, Plaza accord, and Asian currency crisis among others. Today, CellMark Japan has establish a stable position and strive to earn and maintain the market’s confidence and respect. We value our relationships highly and proudly celebrate our 50 years anniversary this year. It has been achievable entirely thanks to continuous support from all our valuable customers over the years.
In the words of Japanese classical literature, “Hojoki”, it is said “The flow of the river is ceaseless and its water is never the same.” I believe, from long experience, that people know that life never stay the same and everything will change. Sometimes change brings you hard test and sometimes change trains you to be stronger. Even after 50 years, CellMark Japan promise we will keep growing powerfully.
We are developing new business fields in paper related products, food ingredients, bio-energy, and medical devices, utilizing various experiences we learnt over long time working with industrial products in the areas of Metals and Chemicals. We look forward to working with new and existing partners and are highly grateful for and appreciate your continuous support.
Representative Director of CellMark Japan
At CellMark we see more and more often that cross-divisional work pays off. A recent example of this is the DrincTex exhibition in Munich mid September. After 5 days of exhibiting our two team CellMark Technology and CellMark Chemicals both “brought home” innovative ideas and business leads.
The DrinkTec exhibition in Munich is the world´s leading trade fair for the beverage and liquid food industry with over 1,500 exhibitors and around 67,000 visitors. Drinctec turned out to be a great networking event. CellMark’s Technology team was represented by Jonathan Östergren Bööj, Ulf Sjödin and Martin Skoger. With the slogan “TURNING RESIDUES INTO NEW PRODUCTS” they demonstrated innovative solution of valorising biological residues. These solutions were met with very positive attraction from the industry which created new possible leads.
One valuable takeaway is the collaboration between our two teams, Technology and Chemicals. CellMark Chemicals divisional representatives also present at the fair, Frédéric Roquefeuil, Hyoungjun Ahn, Rick Schatz, Friedrich Grothe and Sarah-Lisa Wendt, all showed stunning cross-divisional support where many new synergetic innovative ideas emerged, something we will definitly see more of in future.
CellMark Packaging Team is participating at India Folding Carton Expo September 14-16 in New Dehli to learn about demands, trends and meeting entrepreneurs & new collaborations. Co-located with India CorrExpo – a corrugated packaging trade fair, the event attracts trade professionals also from the corrugated industry. Contact email@example.com to book a meeting or stop by out booth No D13 for a chat.
“This is India’s premier business event and conference for post-print manufacturing equipment and consumables from the folding carton industry. The show offers a powerful and knowledge networking base for each industry player who wants to deal with the optimization of processes and the creation of solutions for the folding carton industry.”
CellMark’s Annual Report has been nominated for The Publishing Prize, an annual juried contest for films, websites, newspapers, magazines, books and other printed matter in English, Norwegian or Swedish. We have particiated before and been nominated 3 times, winner 2 times as well as been rewarded with an extraordinary prize for the design and visual content.
In 1984, when CellMark was founded, the company was marketed as “The New Alternative”. The ambition was that the company would represent something entirely innovative as a marketing organization for the industry. The presentation of our financial result was also to be marked by new ideas. Having the work of various artists decorate the otherwise mundane financial and test material was consistent with CellMark’s innovative way of thinking and enabling representatives from entirely different fields of creativity to introduce their art forms.
Over the years, we have collaborated with the art director Andrew Cowie, who has been our loyal companion and guide on this exploration tour. Andrew has, and are still, challenging us with ideas and we are greatly impressed by his versatility and design creativity. This year, we believe that Andrew has done something really extraordinary – we are featuring a very characteristic French entrepreneur in art, named Jean-Claude Floch.
“The Publishing Prize, which is independent of industry organizations, is a comprehensive communication contest. It embraces most established forms of communication. The PP is in three categories: Print, Website and Film.
The jury consists of active communicators such as photographers, graphic designers, film producers, journalists and editors. They examine, evaluate and compare the entries, which are judged using a number of criteria. The judging criteria and the jury’s ranking points are public.
Competitors (and winners) in The Publishing Prize have encompassed both large and small players in the industry. Entries include in-house productions on limited budgets as well as those from established creative agencies and publishers.
CellMark’s Technology team will be at the Drinctec exhibit to present to brewers a revolutionary drying technology for organic materials and residuals together with Multivector, the Norwegian company behind this technology. The team provides technical solutions to global corporations as well as small local businesses with a high focus on sustainability, time and energy efficiency. The Multivector technology free up and improve capabilities, reduces volume, lower transportation cost and simplifies handling of waste.
In fact, it turns waste into a useful transportable commodity while making your core business more cost efficient. And if that’s not enough, this technology is applicable for almost all areas of biomass processing, not only for brewers.
The Multivector can be designed for both industrial and small scale mixing and drying processes, as needed. The technology is based on mechanical fluidization where rotors with patented shovels secure a good mix and that a huge amount of surface area is exposed for drying. Superheated steam, generated from the moist of the input, is used in the drying process.
A continuous process instead of batch process.
Come and meet us, at the Drinktec 2017 exhibition in
Munich Sep 11-15, to experience our solutions in turning
Brewer’s grain into consumable food and animal feed. We will be at hall B2 stand 150 and are looking forward to meet you!

CellMark’s expertise in medical device distribution, logistics and sales support will enable My+Care™ to gain traction with healthcare facilities around the world. The partnership will cover Asia, Europe, Africa, N America, S America and the Middle East.

The band makes health care mobile and makes it easier to predict and anticipate patients’ needs. It registers a condition or behavior instantly. For instance, if we move or fall the data is analyzed in an app in real time, and help can be sent instantaneously.
We are heading in a direction where there are more people in need of care than there are resources. The My+Care™ technology is developed to be used in the health care sector, for public as well as private establishments. Both patients and providers benefit from this new cloud-based technology which will make health care happen promptly and secure personalized care. Consequently it may save or even extend human lives. With this kind of cloud based technology solutions, we can envision a future of health care that provides us with dignity, security and a valuable way of life while keeping the sense of independency and privacy.
There’s also potential for use of this technology in other areas beyond the health sector which makes it even more interesting.

Based on mutual trust and transparency, Health Invest Finland and CellMark have created a business concept to secure supply of the My+Care™ hardware and a structure to provide service for customers worldwide. We believe that this agreement and future collaboration between our two companies is the way forward that will lead to sustainable business growth and improved patient outcomes in a world that is ageing fast ”, commented Niclas Möttus Olsson, President CellMark Medical.
A couple of months ago Marcus Wahlberg, coordinating the Taskforce for business development at CellMark, had the great pleasure of discussing innovation with Peet van Biljon, Senior Advisor atInnovation 360 Group and former Global Innovation Practice Manager at McKinsey & Company, during a workshop on innovation that CellMark sponsored in Washington, D.C. As Peet points out, it’s important to strike a balance between focusing on today’s efficient operations and the strategic decisions and investments for tomorrow. It’s fascinating how we build efficiencies into our organizations, and the better we build, the more rigid we become.
However, innovation is rarely efficient, yet it’s vital for the very survival of a firm. Thus, creating a space for innovation is vital. It’s of course difficult, but difficult is good, because few can handle it, and the rewards for the ones that can are great. Find our more ont he topic in this video.
