Last week, Penguin Random House in Spain invited writers, suppliers, and customers to a tree planting excursion. CellMark Paper were invited as representative for Holmen Paper. The focus of the day was on sustainability and preservation of the forest for future generations.
The idea was that representatives from the whole book production chain starting from the publisher, paper manufacturer, printer, FSC, and paper recycler shared what they do to support the sustainability and preservation of our environment. With this action they wanted to point out the important role we all have in the book making process and how vital it is to maintain our raw material paper. After the presentations everyone was invited by WWF to plant trees in Parque Natural de Montnegre, a national park close to Barcelona.
Mid October, the yearly CellMark VIP Customer Appreciation Party was held at The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club in Chicago. This year’s theme “One hot Havana night” included lots of festive entertainment, good live music and an open bar with a variety of tropical food and refreshments. And of course 10 courts for playing authentic Shuffleboard!
The event is always designed to show our deepest appreciation to all of our most valued vendors and customers for their continued support to CellMark Recycling while raising money for the PaperSeed Foundation and having a great time after a fruitful conference. Thanks to all partners we managed to raise about USD 15,000 via cabana sales and raffled off a variety of tech-based prizes.
The big takeaway is that we continue to succeed at building long-standing, meaningful relationships with the diverse group of people that we do business with around the world.
Thanks to all partners for a joyful and memorable evening. Hope to see you again next year!

The next milestone is 2011 — it is now we deepen our partnership with PaperSeed Foundation.

Earlier in October, CellMark Chemicals attended CPhI Worldwide 2018 in Madrid. This is the world largest pharmaceutical event that unites more than 100,000 pharmaceutical professionals through exhibitions, conferences and online communities to network, identify business opportunities and expand the global market.
CellMark participated with 15 people from Asia, USA and Europe. It was a great event allowing the team to interact with major producing partners and valued customers from the pharmaceutical and fine chemicals synthesis industries.
We would like to thank all the producing partners and valuable customers for a lot of various fruitful business discussions. For the CellMark group, meetings like this really pave the way forward to further business cooperation around the pharmaceutical market.

Logistics and shipping are important parts of CellMark’s service portfolio. We ship about 3 million tons of products or 100000 teu of the total 7 million tonnes that we handle every year. One of the most notable developments in the maritime industry is the introduction of the container shipping forms. Today’s shipping capacity is massive and we are really fascinated of the fantastic evolution of the shipping industry. What do you know about the shipping development over the years?
