A successful year for the Model Group

CH - 19.02.2020: Model Group’s 2019 financial year was characterised by stable sales figures and challenging markets. The producer of cardboard packaging and other paper products achieved a group turnover of CHF 942 million (-5%). This slight decline can be explained by an increase in the internal use of Model Group corrugated board and the strength of the Swiss franc.
