Originally founded as a sawmill in 1889, Obbola was rebuilt to manufacture pulp in 1913 and began producing kraftliner in 1975. It has one of the widest liner machines in the world. We are very proud of our state-of-the-art mill in Obbola, which after extensive investments, today has a completely new pulp mill.
