Mr. Bernard Lemaire, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Cascades Inc. is pleased to announce the appointment of Michel Desbiens to the Board of Directors of the company.
Mr. Desbiens joins the Cascades team after a long and profitable career with Donohue Inc. where, until recently, he was President and Chief Executive Officer. His experience at the head of one of North America’s top ranked companies in the pulp and paper industry can only benefit Cascades in its future development.
Cascades Inc. produces and converts one of the most complete ranges of packaging products in North America. Cascades is also a Canadian leader in the production of tissue papers and specialised fine papers. Internationally, the Cascades Group employs close to 12,000 people and operates more than 140 modern and versatile operating units located in Canada, the United States, Mexico, France, England, Germany and Sweden. The Group recycles more than two million tons of paper and board annually, supplying the majority of its fibre requirements. Leading-edge de-inking technology, sustained research and development, and more than 35 years of experience in recycling are all distinctive strengths that enable Cascades to manufacture innovative value-added products. Cascades’ common shares are traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol CAS.
