Arctic Paper Munkedals

About us

In Munkedal, about 100 km north of Göteborg, is one of the most beautifully-situated paper mills in the world, Arctic Paper Munkedals AB. The site was chosen with care - but we were not the first. That was the monks, who later gave their name to the estate, the paper mill, the village, the district and, finally, our brand. Where the Munkedal and Örekil Rivers meet, the monks used to fish for salmon for the monastery at Bokenäset, alongside the beach at Gullmarn fjord.

That was eight hundred years ago, but the Örekil River is still considered to be one of the country’s finest salmon rivers, with many keen anglers visiting every year.

During the last 20 years there have been major investments, and the mill today is one of the most environmentally-friendly paper mills in the world. Today, we are one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of uncoated paper, with significant exports to many parts of the world.
