Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill JSC (Arkhangelsk PPM) announced that its subsidiary, Arkhbum-Pack, and the Government of the Kaluga Region (western Russia) on July 22 signed an Agreement of Intent for the construction of a plant for the production of consumer packaging such as paper bags.

The planned investment will be about 2 billion rubles and Arkhangelsk PPM expects the new plant to create about 200 jobs.

According to the signed document, the land plot required for the project will be located within the boundaries of the Kaluga SEZ on the territory of the Borovsky District of the Kaluga Region, respectively.

Vladimir Krupchak, a member of the Board of Directors of Arkhangelsk PPM, explained that the new plant will expand the company's product line, based not only on the market situation, but above all, guided by new environmental trends. "The paper bag is a green alternative to plastic package," he said.

Krupchak also noted that the new plant's equipment will include flexographic printing presses, as well as several converting lines for the production of paper bags.

The raw materials for the production will be white kraft paper and board produced by Arkhangelsk PPM.
