Munksund’s roots stretch back to the 1860s and one of the first steam sawmills in northern Sweden. Today the mill produces 415,000 tonnes of kraftliner per year. Raw materials are harvested mainly from sustainably managed forests in nothern Sweden, where conditions are particularly favourable for slow growth. This produces exceptionally long, strong, high quality fibres.
