In Braviken Holmen XLNT is produced, a good alternative to MFC and SC paper for magazines and catalogues. Besides newsprint, Braviken's best known papers include the pink paper that is used by the financial press and sports press, among others.
Holmen Paper intends to cease production on PM 51 at Braviken Paper Mill during the third quarter of 2013. The mill’s product mix will be improved when the proportion of newsprint shrinks by 200 000 tonnes. At the same time, staff will be cut by 180 persons.
