conVerd will become a part of FiberMark’s wide and grand format ink jet business and take on the conVerd brand name. Paul Paulette, the current owner and President of conVerd, will join FiberMark as Vice President and General Manager of the new conVerd/FiberMark business unit.
conVerd is recognized around the world for being the leader in providing sustainable paper based print media solutions to the wide and grand format print markets. conVerd’s philosophy is to create and market products that exhibit superior print performance and fitness-for-use with an eco-friendly conscience. The word conVerd is derived from the Catalan words “con” meaning with and “verd” meaning green.
“This is a very exciting acquisition for FiberMark and it is a perfect fit with our existing wide format ink jet business” said Chris McInerney, FiberMark’s Senior Vice President of Sales. The conVerd product line and the FiberMark wide format ink jet product line are both US manufactured, PVC free and FSC® certified. The combined FiberMark-conVerd business will, unquestionably, be the leading provider of green, PVC alternative print media for the wide and grand format digital print markets.
