SCA, Sweden, this past week formally celebrated the inauguration of its new tissue mill in Sahagún, north of Mexico City. In addition to regional SCA management, Mexican President Felipe Calderón attended the event, as did the Hidalgo State Governor and the Mayor of Sahagún.

The $210 million investment includes a 60,000 metric tpy paper machine and tissue converting hall, as well as a recycled fiber plant and distribution center.

"Our new facility is a strategically important investment. The plant, located near key markets in and around Mexico City, will enable SCA to enhance its product quality and expand its offering to consumers," said Jaime Costa Lavín, president of SCA Mexico and Central America.
