One of the mills in the Arctic Paper Group dates back from the 1740s. Then and now, the key to success has been tightly linked to its extensive knowledge of pulp and paper. With a history of craftsmanship, the production in the three paper mills – as well as the pulp mill – is characterized by industrial efficiency, combined with the flexibility required by a niche producer focused on customer needs.
To us, our long-term perspective is key
The Arctic Paper Group has a major owner whose commitment goes back 65 years in time. When the Trebruk AB Group was restructured 20 years ago into Arctic Paper, there was already an understanding of the risks of unintegrated paper mills in a volatile market. This led to the long-term investment in the Swedish pulp producer Rottneros, a subsidiary since 2013. Both companies focus on high quality specialty products and niche markets. Being less dependent on the capricious price for pulp benefits the company and improves the Group‘s stability throughout the business cycle.
Arctic Paper’s current brand portfolio and innovative product development provide a solid base and ensure that the company is ready to meet future challenges in the markets.
