Metsa Tissue is, in our opinion, the best paper manufacturer in the business. Metsa is one of the Europe’s leading suppliers of tissue paper products in Europe with KATRIN® – their Away from Home brand.
Katrin brand brings wellbeing and functionality with a product range that includes paper towels and dispensing system products which are easy to use, refill and maintain. Katrin’s Less is More concept helps to reduce paper consumption, which means saving resources, money and the environment.
Metsa is committed to conducting their business in a responsible manner. They lead the tissue industry in developing low-impact processes and practices. Recycled fibre accounts for 60% of the fibre used, and all primary fibre suppliers are chain-of-custody certified, ensuring sustainable forest management.
All their products are safe, biodegradable and made of renewable raw materials. They provide environmental excellence, proven through the Nordic Swan certification – chosen because it demands the most stringent requirements and encompasses the widest scope of environmental issues.
Katrin Paper and Soap Dispensers
Katrin Dispensers are made of pure ABS plastic (Acrylonitrile- Butadiene-Styrene). The most important mechanical properties of ABS are impact resistance and toughness – the dispensers therefore will last a long time. They can be re-used (indeed, Metsa Tissue often supports local causes by re-using returned dispensers in local schools, local charitable groups etc.).
Despite the strength mentioned above – 100% of the ABS can also be recycled together with regular plastic waste or used as a bio fuel.
The dispenser casings are purely made from ABS – no other material is added.
