Nekoosa Acquires MagneCote®

On September 20, 2013, Nekoosa Holdings, Inc. acquired the MagneCote® Business from MagnetNotes, LLC. Nekoosa Holdings is the parent company of Nekoosa Coated Products, RTape, and CET Films. For the last five years, MagneCote®, the world’s first magnetic paper, has been an important component in the Nekoosa product portfolio. With this acquisition, Nekoosa assumes full ownership of this product line globally.

Nekoosa is currently moving all manufacturing and converting equipment to the CET Films plant in Lakewood, New Jersey. According to Nekoosa Holdings’ President and CEO Paul Charapata, “the acquisition of MagneCote is a natural fit with the extrusion technologies at CET. The synergies between the companies in our group will allow us to quickly develop new products and expand into new markets.”

MagneCote is the world’s first magnetic paper. It combines premium grade papers coated with a proprietary magnetic layer. The standard product is printable in offset presses or in dry toner/laser copiers. A specially coated version is also available for printing in the HP Indigo presses.

Magnecote magnetic papers provide print shops with a pre-magnetized and cost-effective option for magnetic printing. Its excellent color reproduction and superior ink adhesion make Magnecote® an exceptional choice for applications, such as sports schedules, business cards, signage, calendars, postcards and menus.

Magnecote is available through Nekoosa Coated Products’ distribution partners in the United States and Canada.
