SCA to Build Corrugated Board Mill in France
July 10, 2007 - SCA said that it will invest EUR 46 million in a new corrugated board mill outside Nantes in France. The new mill will eventually replace SCA's existing board mill in that area, the company said.
"We see opportunities to grow in the France Atlantique region with an important customer group within the food industry," said John Williams, president of SCA's Packaging business in Europe. "The new plant will meet the stringent hygiene standards in the production environment, which are crucial for this customer group.
"We are creating a highly flexible plant that will also comply with SCA's high sustainability requirements and offer our employees an improved working environment," Williams added.
The new mill is slated to be operational in 2009.
