Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

The Heinzel Group, Vienna, Austria, will install a new paper machine at its Pöls, Austria, mill. The new machine will cost some EUR 115 million and will take about 18 months to erect. Construction will begin this summer and the new, 5.4 m-wide bleached kraft papers machine will startup in late 2013.

"With construction of the new paper machine, we are primarily reacting to the increasing quality demands of the market while strengthening the Pöls site at the same time," said Alfred Heinzel, CEO of Heinzel Group.

Zellstoff Pols AG, a subsidiary of the Heinzel Group, is the largest producer of premium grade bleached long-fiber sulfate pulp in Central and South-Eastern Europe. In addition to pulp, Pöls also produces premium grade bleached kraft paper under the Starkraft name. With the new paper machine, the mill will increase its capacity to 80,000 metric tpy.
