Mohawk Fine Papers, Inc. announced the transition for its sourcing of cast coated products from the Kromekote brand to Chromolux manufactured by M-real.
Mohawk expects to begin accepting orders in August. During the transition period, Mohawk will continue to support sales of Kromekote until current inventories are depleted.
Mohawk will offer Chromolux for traditional commercial printing and will launch new Chromolux digital papers to complement its product and service offering in the rapidly growing digital printing market.
“Cast coated papers play a key role in our product offering, and we intend to create a world-class line up for every leading print platform,” said Thomas D. O’Connor, Jr., chairman and chief executive officer, Mohawk Fine Papers. “We are happy to announce this partnership with a globally recognized brand and to be working with the M-real organization. This partnership is strategic to our growth plan.”
