LET'S GO BACK AND SEE HOW IT ALL GOT STARTED
CMPC Ventures opens a new office in Finland with the purpose of connecting directly with the Finnish and other Nordic innovation ecosystems.
Brazil's Iguaçu, a producer of sacks, paper and pulp, becomes part of CMPC, making the company the second largest sack producer in the world.
With an investment of USD 530 million, the BioCMPC project begins with the aim of expanding and modernizing the pulp mill in Guaíba and making it one of the most sustainable in Brazil.
To address some of the needs brought on by the pandemic, it begins with manufacturing masks in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru, achieving a production capacity of 19 million per month for the region. The masks were distributed free of charge through various organizations.
CMPC unified its subsidiaries in the Tissue business area under the name of Softys, with the aim of adjusting the business to the growth dynamics of a multi-Latin company that adapts to local realities with products that are much closer to the end consumer. Also, the business of CMPC Paper was reorganized to restructure its subsidiaries, giving rise to CMPC Biopackaging with four areas: Corrugated, Boxboard, Sack Kraft and Edipac.
