BillerudKorsnäs makes strategic investment in Gruvön
The board of BillerudKorsnäs has today made the decision to carry out the largest investment in the history of the company and one of the largest in Sweden in recent years - the investment in a new board machine at the Gruvön site. The decision has been made in view of growing demand for sustainable packaging solutions for food and beverages globally.
The investment of SEK 5.7 billion includes the construction of a new board machine at the Gruvön production site and rebuilds in the existing pulp mill. The board machine will have an annual capacity of 550,000 tonnes of board, making it one of the largest of its kind in the world. The machine will produce liquid packaging board, cartonboard, food service board and liner. The investment project will start immediately and production is expected to start in the first quarter of 2019.
