Klabin | TMF Group Case Study

Local knowledge was the key challenge for leading paper producer and exporter

Brazilian manufacturer tells how TMF Group’s local knowledge helped the company set up in the United States 

Klabin, Brazil's largest paper producer and exporter, is the leading manufacturer of paper and board for packaging, corrugated board packaging and industrial sacks, and also markets timber in logs. With 15 industrial plants – 14 in Brazil and one in Argentina – the company was founded in 1899 and its capital is 100% Brazilian.

“In 2009 Klabin decided to open an office in the United States (Miami). The whole idea was a challenge because even though we have warehouses in the States it was the first time the company was going to manage operations from outside Brazil. The US market was totally new to us so we needed advice and help on local issues - specifically payroll and tax compliance. We found TMF Group had that knowledge.”

“We are constantly thinking about growth.  In the beginning we were not that focused on growing the US operations, particularly because of the market downturn and uncertainty in comparison with the strength that the Brazil market used to enjoy. But now that we are seeing the US market recovering we can start considering growing our production and exports level in the region.”

“Hopefully in a near future we will start evaluating new opportunities in the United States and if good ones arrive we can grow our operation size and extend our relationship with TMF Group.”

TMF Group provides payroll and market entry, among other services, to Klabin in the United States.
