Four Reasons to Invest in Glatfelter
Our teams have deep knowledge of materials, manufacturing technology and product performance. We use this knowledge to deliver innovative products and customized solutions to blue-chip customers.
We continue to invest in product development and innovation. Our teams have expertise in filtration, health and hygiene products, and the recent sustainability trends toward plastic-free substrates in a variety of consumer and industrial applications.
In 2019, Glatfelter created a dedicated Breakthrough Development Team. The team, comprised of about 20 employees with advanced degrees in Material Science and Chemistry, is focused on identifying and quickly bringing to fruition the most promising innovations.
Our robust continuous improvement program focuses on minimizing waste and maximizing up-time.
Our reductions in corporate costs generated $15 million in savings in 2019. We continue to take a disciplined approach to capital allocation as we evaluate strategic opportunities going forward.
We believe Glatfelter has stable cash flows and a strong balance sheet to fund our dividend and on-going growth.
In 2018 and 2019, we executed several strategic actions that led to stronger cash flows and meaningful improvements in profitability. We expanded our airlaid capacity organically, acquired additional airlaid assets, divested our specialty paper business and resolved an environmental matter. We also settled our US pension obligations and refinanced our debt. As a result, we believe we are well positioned to accelerate growth and expand our leadership position in 2020 and beyond.
