As from October all Holmen Paper sales in Spain and Portugal are managed by our Madrid team as Holmen’s local sales office was closed down during the fall. Holmen Paper and CellMark have today a partnership in several markets globally. Through our Madrid offices we serve publishers, printers, editors, retailers and similar companies and offer fresh-fiber paper products from Holmen’s Swedish mills.
Together, the Iberian team of five people have an experience age of 82 years in the paper industry. Which is pretty impressive for a new office. We asked the group what their impressions was of our company so far. They mentioned that they had experienced a nice friendly welcoming. The main attraction, is the entire group’s global and local knowledge, holistic approach, understanding of today’s business landscape, broad information base, and synergies thanks to our diversity in our divisions. So many people with local capabilities in a global context, open to opportunities and business that lies ahead of them. This opens up a world outside of a paper company, which they find very exciting.
We welcoming our Madrid friends to CellMark and wishing them good luck with the business!
Mid October, the CellMark Recycling VIP Client Appreciation Party took place in Fulton Market, Chicago. This year’s lavish theme “Carnivale“ got a lot of attention for its musty ambience and spicy flavors. A plethora of entertainment like aerialist show, samba dancers, cigar roller, live exotic birds, fire dancers, music was enjoyed during the evening.
CellMark Recycling VIP Client Appreciation Party has a long tradition. Our Recycling Division has hosted the event in Chicago for the past 10 years. About 400 of our business partners, who the same week are visiting the annual Paper and Plastics Recycling Conference, were invited to attend the party. Since inception, it has become a dual purpose event with a tremendous success. We want to show our deep appreciation for the business that we do and to honor our most valued suppliers, customers, partners, and friends – the best crowd of individual personalities!
Over the years it has become an extremely well-known and highly anticipated and respected industry event that continues to strengthen and highlight the CellMark brand & core values. The party is also set up to benefit the PaperSeed Foundation as a platform to help raise funds via elaborate prize raffles and auctions. This year was our best year to date. We are very excited about the fact that we managed to raise over $15,000 for PaperSeed!
Thank you all for a great party, all the joy and warmth that was reached out to us during the evening. Hope to see you again next year!
