Neenah Paper Partners with IGEPA


Neenah Paper (NYSE: NP) is announcing a partnership with the IGEPA Group in Germany, Belgium, Holland and Switzerland. In their ongoing search for innovation, the IGEPA group found two paper grades previously available exclusively in the U.S. that could not be more different, yet work well together: ENVIRONMENT® Papers, with soft colors inspired by nature, and OXFORD® Papers, with a delicate fabric-like surface. Different in character, both papers are suitable for a variety of application possibilities.



Brands can make statement on Neenah’s sustainable papers without compromising their image. ENVIRONMENT Papers are a visual experience, offering a selection of colors from light to medium tones, some enhanced with visible fibers. The tactile finish of OXFORD Papers emulates the look and feel of luxurious fabric and the sophisticated color palette can create stylish office stationery, packaging, brochures and much more. Both expressive and impressive, ENVIRONMENT and OXFORD Papers differ in color and finish, but share a common trait – they are both manufactured by a company that produces paper in a sustainable way.



“This is a great partnership for Neenah Paper. I am very excited to grow our relationship with the IGEPA Group. This has been two years in the making and it is only the beginning of a strong relationship,” said Richard Johnson, international sales manager for Neenah Paper in Europe, Africa and the Caribbean. “Our goal was to offer products that are new and different, easy to understand and make no compromise on quality or performance. The result is an offering that is complete in both brands, compatible with each other and available in writing, text and cover (WTC), envelopes, digital ready, textures and several grammages all in European sizes! This provides the perfect opportunity to strengthen our relationships and generate value and growth for IGEPA in key markets where image and performance matter.”

Neenah is announcing an additional partnership with Double V, a member of the IGEPA Group based in Moscow, Russia. Double V is now stocking CLASSIC CREST® Papers in several colors, which marks the first time Neenah Paper has been represented in Russia.
