Arjowiggins Graphic Announces Papersmith as New Cocoon Distributor in India

Press release from the issuing company

Arjowiggins Graphic, a leading manufacturer of environmental paper solutions, has today announced a strategic partnership with Papersmith to distribute its flagship recycled paper, Cocoon 100% recycled, in India. The announcement signals the expansion of Cocoon in three key geographical locations including Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru.

Arjowiggins Graphic’s innovative Cocoon range recycles office waste paper into premium quality bright white recycled paper using a unique environmental chlorine free process. As demand for sustainable production and eco-friendly products continues to grow, Cocoon provides businesses with 100% recycled extra-white paper which delivers outstanding print performance and print results comparable to virgin fibre papers, whilst helping to reduce their environmental footprint.

Ian Braithwaite, Overseas Sales Manager Arjowiggins Graphic said,

“Our new relationship with Papersmith is a step forward in our ambitions to become the leading global provider of recycled papers. We’re confident that our Cocoon product will be perfectly supported by the local service and expertise of the Papersmith team, and look forward to the opportunities our partnership will bring as we enter new markets.”
Cocoon products are manufactured from 100% FSC certified recycled de-inked pulp produced using pioneering methods at Arjowiggins Graphic’s Greenfield de-inking plant and offer the same performance standards as virgin fibre papers, with excellent runnability and outstanding print results.

Jairaj Suvarna, Director, Papersmith says,

“We are delighted to be working with Arjowiggins Graphic and to be stocking their Cocoon paper range which is a strong addition to our product offering. Cocoon is a great eco-option which provides our customers with a recycled paper option, minimising environmental footprint without compromising on quality.”

Papersmith will stock an extensive range of grammages in all three locations. Cocoon Offset, a 100% recycled uncoated paper will be stocked in 100, 120, 160, 200, 250 and 300 gsm and Cocoon Silk, a 100% recycled uncoated paper, will be stocked in 90, 115, 135, 170, 250 and 300 gsm.

Guaranteed for sheet fed offset, digital printing – dry and liquid toner, suitable for heat set web offset in reels, as well as being suitable for varnishing, film lamination, foil blocking, embossing, folding and die cutting.
