Metsä Group is set to invest heavily in its tissue paper mill operations as part of its Future Factory strategy program. The EUR 100 million investment plan is aimed at achieving world-class efficiency and environmental performance in tissue production, with a focus on modernizing paper machines and processing lines, enhancing energy and water efficiency, and supporting the company’s goal of achieving fossil-free products and production facilities by 2030.
The first investment under the program will be a new hand towel line that produces virgin fiber-based hand towel papers for the Finnish market. Preparations for this investment are already underway, with an expected operational date of 2025. This project represents a logical extension of Metsä Tissue’s ongoing Future Factory investment in Mariestad, Sweden, as well as several other investments in their international factory network.
Metsä Tissue is a subsidiary of Metsä Group, while Forest Board is a publicly listed company owned by the group. The investments under this program will support the growth of Metsä Tissue’s business while also contributing to the broader goals of Metsä Group to drive sustainable forestry practices and create value for its stakeholders.
