BOX project: work continues!

For over 2 years, we have been working on our Golbey industrial site to diversify into the packaging market. To this end, we are investing over 300 million Euros to convert our paper machine #1 (PM1), our pulp production line and our upstream and downstream storage areas. Our goal is to produce over 550,000 tonnes of containerboard per year!
