RDM’s story and its fifth beginning
RDM is the leading Italian and second-ranked European producer of cartonboard made of recycled fibers material. The Company is able to offer today a full range of products from recycled to virgin cartonboard thanks to the acquisition of R.D.M. La Rochette s.a.s. (Cascades s.a.s.), closed on June 30th, 2016.
RDM is listed on the Milan Stock Exchange, within the STAR segment since 1996; the asset base consists of 6 production facilities: 3 mills are located in Italy, 2 in France and 1 in Germany.
The cartonboard offered by RDM can cover several types of applications, from packaging to binding solutions. The large product portfolio is present on the market through different business offers to satisfy customers’ requirements, guaranteeing a wide geographical coverage of the European markets. Customer service, product quality and cost efficiency solutions are paramount, as RDM focuses on becoming the Partner of Choice for converters and end-users.
The Group is also fully actively involved in sustainable development and carefully manages both the energy and natural resources utilized in the production process. One of its strength, in term of production sustainability, is the ability to close the cycle chain of the recycling fibers.
The Board of Directors of Reno De Medici S.p.A. has approved the 100% acquisition of Barcelona Cartonboard S.A.U.. Barcelona Cartonboard is the largest cartonboard producer in Spain, one of the most important paper mills in Southern Europe and ranked seventh in Europe.
