German paper mill Feldmuehle Uetersen, which has filed for insolvency, launched a new label paper named EmbaSet. It is a high-gloss non-wet strength paper for standard labels in weights of 80 and 90gsm.
Suitable for offset, flexo and gravure printing, Feldmuehle said it has been testing the product extensively with some of its customers since November.
“EmbaSet is suitable for standard labels for non-returnable containers in the food and non-food industry. The high white and high gloss surface of the paper ensures excellent printing results,” said senior sales manager Martin Mönke.
“Our filed insolvency proceedings of 24 January are not the end of a path, but rather mark the turn into a more economically successful future,” said managing director Heiner Kayser.
Mönke added, “Everything is running as normal; all of our customers and suppliers are supporting us. The German insolvency law is there to restructure your company – at the moment the government is paying the salaries of the employees and we have three months to restructure ourselves. We already have a couple of investors in place, which are ready, so it’s just a matter of time.”
Feldmuehle annoucned the strategic reorganisation in September 2017.
