By Company press release

BJ Ball will stock and convert Stora Enso packaging boards from February 2015 as a result of a ground breaking agreement with the Scandinavian paper and packaging supplier.

According to Tony Bertrand, marketing manager, the new agreement will see BJ Ball consolidate its position as the Number One supplier to the local packaging industry. Stora Enso claims one in three beverage cartons around the world are made from its materials and that increased global distribution and local partners now play a crucial role.

In a press release the partners highlight some of the main products they will be making available starting with Tambrite, the flag ship product in the range. It is used in pharmaceutical  food and chocolate packaging.

The continuous development of Tambrite has resulted in excellent stiffness and bulk attributes, and the board has a good visual appearance and performs well in printing and converting processes including digital printing. In addition, both laser and inkjet coding can be used, as well as Braille embossing and other special finishing effects. In food packaging, Tambrite is the best choice when package robustness plays an important role. Tambrite is also used for folding cartons for chocolate and confectioneries. Thanks to recent product development, Tambrite is now an even more efficient and environmentally friendly choice than ever before!

BJ Ball will also stock a selected range of Tamfold,  packaging board particularly well suited for food service, such as clamshells used for fast food packaging, since there is no added OBA (optical brightening agents). Tamfold is often chosen for pharmaceutical packaging due to its quality consistency and value for money.

According to Darron White, general manager packaging, BJ Ball, the agreement brings together two organisations with a strong commitment to sustainability. ‘Consumers want confidence that they are dealing with reputable companies; consistency and a stated commitment is important. This is a significant change in the local availability of an internationally renown product that keeps on delivering,’ he said.
