PaperWorks Industries has invested $3 million in a new warehouse for its Wabash, Indiana paperboard mill. The new facility is expected to be operational during the first quarter of 2018. The 44,500 square foot addition to the company's existing mill will be capable of storing up to 7,000 tons of coated recycled board (CRB) rolls. The mill produces PaperWorks' recently launched MasterWorks Ultra 100 line, as well as other CRB grades. "Over the past three years, PaperWorks has invested more than 60 million dollars to upgrade its paperboard mills and folding carton converting plants. This latest investment is designed to lower costs, improve service and reduce our environmental footprint at this location," said Andy Bolton, president and chief executive officer.

SCA’s new facility in Obbola, outside Umeå, has now been inaugurated. This means that the paper mill has the world’s largest machine for kraftliner and with it a significantly increased capacity to produce climate-smart packaging material.
“This is very good for SCA’s and Obbola’s competitiveness and gives us a better ability to deliver in a market that needs to grow as fossil packaging materials are phased out,” says Gustaf Nygren, Mill manager at SCA Obbola.
Capacity for kraftliner production is increasing, from 450,000 tons to 725,000 tons annually. The most visible change at the facility is the addition of the world’s largest machine, supplied by German Voith, for the production of kraftliner. The machine is 250 meters long and is estimated to weigh around 11,000 tonnes.
