Arctic Paper Grycksbo

Fossil free production of strong paper brands with a long history of craftsmanship

The Swedish paper mill Arctic Paper Grycksbo’s long tradition makes it a well-known manufacturer of coated, woodfree paper. Its production process has extremely low fossil CO2 emissions, which is only one example of the ambitious sustainability goals within the Arctic Paper Group.

The mill in Grycksbo, located in the heart of Dalarna in Sweden, was originally founded already in 1740 and has a long, successful tradition of papermaking. Since its early years, the mill’s ambition has been to continuously update processes and improve efficiency.


Under the paper brands G, Arctic and Arctic Volume, Grycksbo produces coated woodfree paper mainly used for printing books, magazines, posters, maps and advertising material. Using a single coating process, the mill produces a one-of-a-kind paper, with the benefits of a coated paper’s printability without losing the contour and feel of the unique paper quality.


Sustainability is in focus in all aspects of operations, and Arctic Paper Grycksbo strives to be one of the most environmentally friendly mills in Europe. This is accomplished by the use of renewable raw material and environmentally compatible production processes along with the responsible use of energy and transportation systems. Since 2009, Arctic Paper Grycksbo’s production is almost 100% fossil free, with energy supplied by a bio burner and supplementary green electricity.

In recent years, Arctic Paper Grycksbo has invested in quality and efficiency upgrades, increasing production efficiency and productivity. Dedicated and systematic work on health and safety measures aims to reach the Arctic Paper vision of zero work-related injuries.
