As of today, BillerudKorsnäs is simplifying its name to Billerud to cater to its international customers.

As a supplier of virgin fibre-based paper and packaging materials, with roots and heritage in the forest and paper industry that go back more than 150 years, the company has had several different names.

The current name change is fully in line with the company’s predefined strategy to expand into North America and continue driving sustainable growth in global markets. The name simplification to Billerud is to be implemented throughout the group immediately, with all employee emails and the corporate web address reflecting the new name.

‘We are now ready to meet the challenges of the future as one company: Billerud,’ stated company president and CEO Christoph Michalski.

‘One year ago, a clear strategic plan was drawn up with the aim of achieving profitable and sustainable sales growth until the year 2030 and to grow in North America. Today we change name to Billerud. The name change is a natural step on our strategic journey.’

Mr Michalski continued, ‘It is with pride that Billerud will carry its history into the present. What won’t change is the fact that we help our customers reduce their climate footprint of both their primary and secondary packaging. For us, product superiority is important and the impressive strength of our papers allow customers to use less packaging, save costs and reduce their carbon footprint. We will continue doing that as Billerud.’
