Insolvent German paper mill Scheufelen is being wound up, according to German media reports.
The Lenningen-based company filed for insolvency in February, seven months after it was resurrected as Scheufelen GmbH after securing investment from Berlin-based Green Growth Fund 2/Wermuth Asset Management, Hamburg-based Nordia Invest and Scheufelen Equity Partners.
