Our aim is that our customers shall receive the best possible quality and a problem-free existence when they use our various products.

The fibre keeps us together

It all begins with a rather unimpressive asset – only a few millimetres long and a fraction of a millimetre wide. We are talking about the wood fibre! Fresh fibre is the base for all our products.

Strategic priorities

  • Rationalisation and enhance efficiency to achieve higher profitability.
  • Higher share of value-added and customised products.
  • Greater degree of raw material integration.
  • Utilise the commercial strength of SCA's leading position in the environmental area, for example, in renewable raw materials and recyclable products.
  • Capitalise on the potential of energy production and effective energy solutions available in SCA's extensive holdings of forests and forestland and in the industry's processes and by-products.
  • Customer oriented product development.
  • Our ambition is to achieve a world class environmental care.

SCA Publication Papers

Publication Papers is an innovative part of SCA.

SCA offers a broad range of high quality publication papers. Our products have a unique environmental profile and SCA has a long tradition of environmental awareness. New from 2012 is that we have included PEFC in our forest certification schemes for all our products.

Investments
SCA is investing MGBP 30 (MEuro 38) at the Ortviken paper mill in Sundsvall, Sweden, to increase the capacity for producing high quality publication paper grades. We are doing this in order for us to support our customers even better in the future and to strengthen the position of our products. SCA's commitment to top quality grades is long term and our publication paper operations are a key component of our Forest Products business.

Innovations
Our newest product is a super bright bulky grade named GraphoInvent. It offers several advantages. The cost of the paper is lower but the perceived quality deteriorates. Less weight also means that you and your customers save money on distribution.

We can now also proudly present GraphoSilk. Not only does it boast the same excellent runnability as GraphoCote, it comes with a number of improvements, such as higher brightness and greater bulk. This makes it an interesting alternative to other matt, bright coated papers.

Product development - R&D Centre

Through customer-oriented development work, we want to enhance the customer's and our own competitiveness. Cooperation with our customers is therefore the highest priority in our product development.

Our R&D Centre expertise covers the entire value chain from raw materials to the final products. Our long tradition in R&D at SCA means that we have extensive experience of this.

SCA R&D Centre focuses on efficient processes for both pulp and paper manufacturing. We use our excellent knowledge right down to the pure fibre level to optimise the raw materials in our pulp and paper products. To support this we have highly qualified engineers and an extensive range of instruments and machinery for physical and chemical pulp and paper testing. We also use a broad range of well-developed methods and techniques for many different areas.

We work closely with research institutes, univer­sities and a number of machine and chemical suppliers.
