Automatic Dewiring Improves Safety at Sonoco Board Mill, Paper360º January/February 2019

In Finland, paper mills often have long histories, and the newly-updated Sonoco Alcore Karhula core board mill is no different. The mill site dates back to the late 19th century, when the mill was developed to manufacture cardboard, and it has been running ever since. Today the mill has approximately 70 workers and its 65-meter long, 3-meter-wide core board line produces roughly 80,000 metric tpy of OCC-based core board for core manufacturing.

Sonoco acquired the mill in 2006 and has proactively developed and invested in it to become one of Finland´s top board manufacturers for the paper core business. The Sonoco Alcore Karhula board mill produces core board mainly for Sonoco’s own core manufacturing needs and the material is transported worldwide to different Sonoco mill and factory locations.
