    02.09.2015 – Given the drastic contraction of the world market for new web press installations over the past years, there is no great meaning behind the market share figures which some manufacturers currently feature prominently in their marketing statements, especially where they relate to a limited period of just a few months or even a single year. In times of extreme reluctance to invest, one or two press orders are often already sufficient to secure a misleadingly larger share of the cake. Such snapshots generally say little about a manufacturer's longer-term technological standing on the market. A much more revealing indicator is the number of new presses delivered over a span of several years.

    (UPM, Helsinki, 1 September 2015) – UPM’s journey at the stock market started one hundred years ago. UPM's predecessor companies Aktiebolaget Walkiakoski and Kymmene Ab were listed on the Helsinki Stock Exchange in August-September 1915. The listing is a significant example of Finnish industrialisation and economic growth as the First World War created a boom for the Finnish industry. Forest industry companies wanted to grow quickly and get additional funding for investments. Many significant Finnish forest industry companies such as Kymi, United Paper Mills, Kaukas, Kajaani, Schauman, Rosenlew, Raf. Haarla and Rauma-Repola have been merged into the UPM Group along the years.
