Hamburger Containerboard Invests in Gelsenkirchen Mill

Germany 30 January 2017 -- Prinzhorn Group's subsidiary, Hamburger Containerboard invested in Gelsenkirchen mill in Germany. With an investment of Euro 20 million the machine setup was updated significantly: besides an increase in production width to 5 m, the film press and drying section were updated to the latest standards too.

In addition, a new pope reeler for wider tambourdiameters and an upgraded soft-nip-calander were installed. The updated setup is able to produce 250,000 tons of uncoated containerboard per year which is an increase of 20% compared to the previous output.

The Hamburger Rieger Gelsenkirchen mill is now able to manufacture even more highquality white Testliner and grey plasterboard. At the same time the production process is in line with state-of-the-art resource management procedures.

"With the restart beginning this year we are happy to be online with probably one of the most efficient machines in the market again," says Andreas Noss, GM of Hamburger Rieger. Jörg Hischemöller, Director Marketing & Sales of Hamburger Containerboard adds: "The increased output and quality in Gelsenkirchen will assist us to compensate for the uncoated paper volume we miss in our Spremberg mill due to an increase in coated white-top testliner capacity."

Hamburger Rieger, with its three German paper mills in Spremberg, Gelsenkirchen and Trostberg is part of the Hamburger Containerboard Division with a total of seven paper mills and 2 million tons of produced container board per year.
