Since 2007: Sustainable composite decking by UPM ProFi – at BAU 2019 fair

Sustainability will be written in big letters by UPM ProFi. Come and see us in January at the BAU fair in Munich, where the start of the decking season for 2019 will be launched. Since 2007, UPM ProFi has been a pioneer in giving a high quality and long lasting second life to materials that would otherwise be landfilled or incinerated.


“Since the beginning UPM ProFi has been at the forefront of minimizing waste and extending the lifecycle of materials by innovating new products from the side streams of industrial production. Over the years we have succeeded significantly to improve both the quality of our composite material and its environmental impact”, explains Edward Robinson, Director of Design, Development and Marketing, UPM Biocomposites.
