Cham Paper Group papers are used in different packaging structures in the food sector. They are printed, laminated and coated – depending on requirements and subsequent application. These packaging materials are used for articles, such as soups/sauces, confectionery, milk products or coffee and tea. As print substrate, the paper is mainly responsible for communicating the brand message to the consumer.
With non-food articles, such as pet food, hygiene products and industrial goods, Cham Paper Group papers are part of the packaging. The papers used are printed, coated and laminated. The paper is an important media for communicating with the consumer and ensures effective presentation on the sales shelf.
The innerliner products of the Cham Paper Group are papers for packaging cigarettes that come into direct contact with the cigarettes. Innerliner papers are generally coated, metallised and/or gravure printed. On the packaging lines, the innerliner is used to transfer the cigarettes to the boxes – particularly on high-speed lines. The innerliner then protects the product inside the packaging.
The Cham Paper Group is a leading manufacturer of coated speciality papers. Surface finishing lends papers properties that generate value added for its customers. The company, which was founded in 1657, has three sites, one in Switzerland (Cham) and two in Italy (Carmignano and Condino), and a global sales network.
The decision to focus on development and sales and discontinue paper manufacturing in Switzerland has made way for a new project on the factory site in the centre of Cham. The Cham Paper Group is developing an eleven-hectare quarter there called the Papieri site.
The Cham Paper Group (ticker symbol: CPGN) is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange.
