The “Olympics of Printing” are over, medals have been distributed and post-analysis is fully underway. Sappi Fine Paper Europe is energised and optimistic as a result of its drupa 2012 experience.

As you are aware, Sappi’s business strategy is built on four pillars, namely fixing the underperforming businesses; maintaining the good performance of the other businesses; investing in areas of high growth; as well as careful balance sheet, debt and cash-flow management.
