Meet One of Our Newest Members!

Per Emilsson, Senior Sales Manager with UMV Coating Systems AB, in Säffle, Sweden, is TAPPI's newest member. While visiting the Norcross, Georgia area recently, Per took advantage of the TAPPI Heaquarters meeting space facilities (a benefit of membership) and got a chance to meet many of TAPPI's headquarters staff. He's shown here (on left) with TAPPI President Larry Montague (right). UMV Coating Systems AB serves a strong aftermarket in the global paper and board industry with a focus on coating and drying. A business unit of Mattssongruppen, UMV Coating Systems has been an innovator in the coating business for more than 40 years and has made over 600 installations worldwide.

As a TAPPI Member, Per plans to become involved in TAPPI's Coatings Committee, hoping to bring a European industry perspective to the group. Other professional interests include quality control/testing and papermaking. Welcome to TAPPI, Per!
