Away from home tissue brands began to emerge in Europe in the early 1970’s. Born in 1974, Katrin was one of the first. The name “Katrin” originates from Metsä Tissue Katrinefors mill, founded in 1762. The mill was named after the founder’s wife. Today, a comprehensive range of Katrin tissue paper products, dispensers and consumables, are sold throughout the Europe and Russia.
Katrin is one of the market leaders in Finland, Scandinavia, Continental Europe and Central East Europe. Our share of the market is increasing in Western and Eastern Europe.
