Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Mayr-Melnhof Karton, Vienna, Austria, has agreed to acquire Södra's Follafoss, Norway pulp mill for an undisclosed amount. In 2012, Södra Cell decided to divest the Follafoss pulp mill. Production at the mill ceased at the end of October/beginning of November 2012. Discussions about selling the mill got under way just before Christmas, a declaration of intent was issued at the end of December, and an agreement has now been reached with Mayr Melnhof Karton.

Södra's pulp mill in Follafoss produces CTMP (chemi-thermomechanical pulp) and has a capacity of just over 100,000 metric tpy.

The Mayr-Melnhof Group, headquartered in Vienna, is the largest producer of coated recycled cardboard, with a growing position in virgin fiber-based board as well as the leading European manufacturer of folding cartons.
