Iggesund Mill is an integrated mill which manufactures solid bleached board (SBB, GZ) from chemical pulp. The product family is called Invercote and is used for the highest quality graphics products and packaging. CD covers and exclusive packaging for perfumes and chocolate are examples of applications.
Invercote is a multi layered Solid Bleached Board and is manufactured from fibre of known and traceable origin and produced at a site where pulp production is integrated with the paperboard mill.
We also have a specialist conversion plant located at Strömsbruk in Sweden, close to Iggesund. There, paperboard is extrusion coated with plastic or laminated with paperboard, foil or film for applications with specific requirements for barrier properties or appearance.
Iggesund Mill’s new recovery boiler and turbine were brought online as planned on 12 June 2012. This investment of almost SEK 2.3 billion is one of the largest industrial investments of recent years in Sweden and a core element of Holmen’s strategy for sustainability and robust competitiveness.
