The use of rigid boards was uncommon when the inventors of Re-board started work on the concept and the board itself.
Traditionally, sandwich boards where made from materials such as plastic, wood and aluminium. These boards were used in the transportation industry in, for example, caravans and cars, and were even used in the aerospace industry. In the mid-90s, the founders of Re-board came to the realisation that a paper-based version would create new opportunities across a wide span of industries, including the graphics industry. Their main motivation, however, was environmental concerns. They reasoned that we could not continue consuming raw materials at the current rate without seriously impacting our planet.
They were thinking 10-15 years ahead. The founders started experimenting with various paper qualities, liners and fluting until they came to a fully recyclable, high-quality and high-performing paper-based board. In 2005, Stora Enso invested in the company and a new era was born.
The board had proven to be very suitable for several applications and now it was time to establish an effective production process so the board could be produced in high volume with consistent quality. The company became wholly owned by Stora Enso. Today, Re-board is mass produced in Norrköping and it is the material of choice, specified and recognised as the “best in class” by world-leading companies and major brands.
