Stora Enso is investing a total of Euro 6.6 million in the corrugated packaging business in Sweden. The investment encompasses a new corrugated cutting machine with high-quality printing in the Jönköping factory, and a smaller upgrade of the cutting system in the Skene factory, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Implementation will begin in the 1Q 2017 in both Jönköping and Skene. In May 2017, the investment is expected to be in operation.
"Market demand for efficiently produced packaging with high-quality printing is constantly growing. This investment ensures that we also in the future can be in the forefront when it comes our customer offering," says Peter Torstensson, Head of Corrugated Nordics, Division Packaging Solutions.
The investment will lead to increased production efficiency which in turn will result in staff redundancies. Negotiations with the unions about the redundancies will commence shortly.
Stora Enso has corrugated packaging production at three locations in Sweden: Jönköping, Skene and Vikingstad. There are a total of about 400 employees at the three factories. Approximately 1 million corrugated boxes are produced daily.
