Specialty Paper Sales

Petersen

Vice President, Export and Specialty

Since 1986 Mark has experienced every facet of the paper industry — from paper converting, printing, customer service, production planning and supervision to logistics and sales. "While I have been involved with most facets of bringing our paper to the market, many of the principles of producing paper and selling it to a customer remain the same. Most of the process is about making what customers need and value and getting it to them as promised. Our value equation is quite simple — to be the preferred supplier and give the customer the best all-round value."
