Reno De Medici Group has decided to stop producing Serviboard in its Arnsberg mill in Germany and transfer it to Santa Giustina, a mill located in the North of Italy, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Santa Giustina has an annual capacity of 250,000 t of GD and GT board and has gone through a number of significant investments over several years, so as to be today fully equipped to carry on the image created on the market by Arnsberg, a position and reputation recognized by the whole European cartonboard market. From Santa Giustina Reno De Medici is today able to widen the range of Serviboard grammage offering.
With this move the Group aims to strengthen the security of supply of WLC offering via a multi-mill concept where GD/GT will be supplied by Santa Giustina and Blendecques, while Villa S. Lucia and Arnsberg will be fully dedicated to produce coated liners, the latest from next year onwards.
The last production cycle of Serviboard in Arnsberg will start on December 12th, 2017.
