Gorham Paper and Tissue, Gorham, N.H., USA, has appointed Commercial Paper Agents (CPA), Dresden, Germany, as its exclusive distribution partner in Europe for its specialty packaging products. Targeting European packaging converters and end users, CPA will focus on selling Optix, a line of specialty papers for food packaging engineered with grease resistance, wet strength, and other functional properties.

"We are pleased to partner with Tom Radtke and the CPA team. They bring a tremendous amount of experience and insight about the needs of the European market," said Brian McAlary, VP of Sales and Marketing for Gorham. "The response to our packaging papers domestically has been phenomenal. With the guidance of CPA, we anticipate the same reception in Europe."

CPA was recently launched by paper industry veteran, Tom Radtke. The CPA team has a network of highly trained technical and sales professionals in place targeting markets that require specialty papers.

Optix is offered in bleached and natural options in 30 -- 90 gsm (18-55 lb., 24 x 36/500) with grease resistance and wet strength. The line is ideal for a range of Quick Serve Restaurant (QSR) and other food packaging including wraps, pouches, bags, and liners. Gorham also makes various bases used for waxing, coatings, and laminations.
