In February 2019 a mutual agreement was made between BHM Group, a.s. Vega-HSH, s.r.o. companies regarding the sale of 50% of shares and receivables in PAPCEL, a.s.

He started his professional career in a Czech paper mill JIP Vetrni but started working in Pribyslavice (now Huhtamaki) shortly after.


He took on several positions across the company at Huhtamaki concern in the paper production divisions as well as food packaging production – from workshop manager, project manager, production manager all the way up to the CEO of Czech branch.


He gradually moved from the position of Czech Huhtamaki CEO to CEO in Northern Ireland, Norway and the Netherlands (where among other things he built a new innovative and project team).

“I am glad to have become a member of PAPCEL company team. We have the kind product for end customers which grows. We are able to solve customer’s objectives and requirements comprehensively and not only as one of the contractors. But above all we have experienced, skilled and loyal people without whom no company in the world can survive in the long run and be successful,” Mr. Domin, CEO of PAPCEL said.
