Sappi increases production of Fusion Topliner in its Austrian site
publié le lundi 31 janvier 2022
Sappi, provider of sustainable woodfibre-based packaging materials, is expanding production of its successful Fusion Topliner grade to its flagship mill in Gratkorn, Austria. The Fusion Topliner – a white virgin fibre liner for high-quality corrugated packaging – will also continue to be manufactured at Sappi’s Ehingen mill in Germany.
With this project, Sappi isn’t just expanding its production capacity in the corrugated board business. By offering the same product quality from both mills, the company is bringing production closer to its customers – to guarantee a sustainable and short supply chain in the heart of Europe.
Fusion Topliner is recommended for applications such as premium quality consumer goods packaging and POS displays – where high visual impact and differentiation are key. The product also stands out with exceptional strength and versatility. Demand for the product has continued to grow, due to its characteristics for print quality and finishing. Production is now being expanded from the German mill in Ehingen to include Sappi’s flagship mill in Gratkorn. The available capacities are now being expanded to include the production of Fusion Topliner in addition to existing graphic papers. Volume availability will be increased month by month to support the expected growth of our customers, and to satisfy large requirements in the corrugated board business.
“Gratkorn offers the best possible technical prerequisites for the production of our Fusion product. With the investments we have made, Sappi is strengthening both its packaging and speciality paper business as well as the Gratkorn mill itself,” explains Sappi Sales Director Packaging & Digital Solutions Luis Mata.
