The ranking list and results from the 2008 survey “Top Suppliers of Woodfree Coated Sheets” in Central & Eastern Europe was today released by Opticom International Research.

Sheetfed printers in C&EE are ranking the top suppliers based on how well they fulfil their demands when it comes to different supplier- and service- related criteria. The ranking is also a result of how loyal customers are towards the different suppliers. The supplier survey is, just like the actual brand study, based on close to 500 interviews with sheetfed printers in Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland.

Due to the nature of sheetfed business (99% of all respondents have a paper merchant rather than a paper producer as their main supplier of woodfree coated sheets), the supplier part of this survey includes evaluation of paper merchants such as; Alfapapir, Antalis, Berberich, Cezex, Europapier, Gumiprint, Igepa, Inapa, PaperlinX and Papyrus, but also paper producers such as Burgo, M-real and UPM.

The Supplier Index ranking according to sheetfed printers in C&EE looks as follows (last year’s ranking within brackets):

Top Supplier in C&EE (Rank 2007):
1. Igepa (new)
2. Papyrus (4)
3. Europapier (1)
4. Antalis (5)
5. PaperlinX (2)
