Leadership from Charta Global announced today they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Charta Global will acquire Global Paper Solutions(GPS) and PaperMax assets to create a unique operator in the paper, board and packaging market with unprecedented capabilities in product, service and delivery. 

The new company, to be re-launched as Charta Global will create a premier and powerful ally for all of North America’s paper, board, graphical and packaging needs. Charta is home to the specialty paper needs of businesses and consumer segments; GPS, board and packaging; and PaperMax, the coated paper segment. 

Charta Global will marry superior client service with a premier suite of products as it will be the exclusive carrier of the Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) product category. 

According to Rizal Setiadi, president of the newly formed Charta Global, research shows retail brands, merchants and convertors are looking to procure several products from one single unified source. “We have been listening to customer feedback, as well as studying future trends within the paper industry. This is an exciting time in the paper, board and packaging market.” 

Setiadi believes Charta Global will now be able to streamline best-in-class quality, supply chain, and volume, but with added value via personalized relationships adapted specifically toward a client’s immediate, as well as predictive needs. “These sectors are transitioning and our new combination provides a perfect complement of products, service, R&D and logistics -- all in one place,” said Setiadi. 

Charta Global sales leadership expects a seamless transition for all of its existing customers as the integration and implementation of wider product range and innovative process and logistics enhancements begin.
