Sack kraft paper manufacturers can look back on a busy business year 2014 in Germany. Demand picked up again very early this year due to the mild winter and then continued to gain strength from quarter to quarter. The traditionally slow final quarter of the year also presented itself in its best light in terms of sales activity. “The fourth quarter of 2014 was much stronger than in the past and it’s been a good many years since our order books have been as
full as in 2014,” a producer told EUWID. Although a seasonal weakening was noticeable in comparison to the autumn quarter, it has turned out to be much less pronounced than in other years.
