Mondi Expands Professional Printing and Converting Papers Portfolio from Its Slovak Mill

Mondi IQ ALLROUND Mondi's IQ ALLROUND Envelope and IQ UNIVERSAL Notebook are two of the products now readily available in narrow reels.

March 6, 2024 - Mondi recently put a new slitting and rewinding unit into operation at its Slovak paper mill in Ruzomberok.

According to Mondi, the equipment allows for an extended capacity in narrow reels.

"We want to give our customers supply security for their paper needs in folio and various reel widths and for this we needed to extend our narrow reel capacity," explains Bernhard Cantzler, Marketing and Sales Director at Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper.

The extended portfolio allows Mondi to service customers especially in the professional printing and converting sectors. For example, narrow reels are used for print applications or converted into envelopes or writing pads.

IQ ALLROUND Envelope and IQ UNIVERSAL Notebook are two of the products now readily available in narrow reels ensuring a steady paper supply to converters.

This wide paper portfolio is offered from Mondi SCP, Mondi's integrated pulp and paper mill located in Slovakia fulfilling strict sustainability requirements. All Mondi uncoated fine paper brands produced at the site are Cradle to Cradle Certified® at the Bronze level. This certification ensures that, regardless of the level, all certified products are safe, circular and responsibly made.

Depending on the specific product, the papers carry the EU Ecolabel and are chain of custody certified according to PEFC and/or FSCTM requirements.

"We work together with our suppliers, customers and partners to get one step closer to our common goal of a true, fully circular economy," Cantzler said. "To achieve this, we invest in climate-efficient production assets and processes, responsibly source 100% of our wood and work with independent certification bodies to confirm our standards and stringent European regulations."

Mondi is a global leader in packaging and paper. Its business is integrated across the value chain - from managing forests and producing pulp, paper and films, to developing and manufacturing sustainable consumer and industrial packaging solutions using paper where possible, plastic when useful.
