Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Since the spring of 2018, the responsibilities for the sale of "Grapho" (SC paper) and "Starboard" (containerboard) have been divided up. The aim of this new sales structure is to provide every customer group with optimum support on a specific segment basis and use recognisable potential with even greater efficiency.

During the past two years, Laakirchen Papier (Austria) has been characterized by numerous changes. For example, in the spring of 2018 its sales operations were restructured in order to facilitate a still more targeted response to customer requirements. As Franz Baldauf, the Laakirchen Papier AG CFO, explains: "Laakirchen Papier has to constantly develop further in order to be able to continue to meet the increasing demands of the paper industry in years to come. Our current sales structure is now precisely targeted on the special needs of our customers."

Separate sales responsibilities for "Grapho" and "Starboard":
The focus of this restructuring was the division of responsibilities for the sales of "Grapho" and "Starboard". At the start of December, Thomas Komin assumed responsibility for "Grapho" sales at the Laakirchen location. The Head of Sales for "Starboard", which is produced in Laakirchen und Raubling, Germany, is Matthias Conrad, who has occupied this post since the beginning of 2018. Thomas Krawinkler, the former Head of SC Sales, left the company at the end of November.
