SCA invests in Munksund

  • Regulatory press release

A new winder will further improve production capability of our premium product SCA White Top Kraftliner at the SCA-owned Munksund mill outside Piteå, Sweden.

SCA White Top Kraftliner is a product that is showing strong growth in the market. This grade of containerboard has a full-cover white surface layer, which offers very good printing characteristics. The investment will entail the replacement of the existing winder in order to increase delivery safety and future quality demand. It leads to a somewhat increased production capacity. The new winder is expected to be in operation by spring 2011. The investment cost is estimated at SEK 255m.
