Skoghall Mill better prepared for the future

The EUR 90 million investment known as Wood 2012, which included a new wood room and new wood yard at Skoghall Mill in Sweden, has now been inaugurated.

​​The ceremony, which gathered some 500 people, was attended by Swedish Minister for Enterprise, Annie Lööf, as well as the Head of the Renewable Packing Division, Mats Nordlander, and Stora Enso’s CEO, Jouko Karvinen.

The Skoghall Mill is one of Europe’s largest manufacturers of liquid packaging board – a product area that is experiencing growth. About 85 per cent of its production is exported.

“Skoghall is the mill of tomorrow, which manufactures packaging materials for emerging markets. We are investing in areas in which we are already successful and where our operations work well. The investment in Skoghall will enable us to advance on a successful concept,” said Mats Nordlander.

Stora Enso’s CEO, Jouko Karvinen, and Minister for Enterprise, Annie Lööf, made the inaugural cut – by sawing a log in half.
