New BM 1 and fully modernized off-coater for Metsä Board Husum

In 2016, Metsä Board started up at its Husum mill a new OptiConcept M board machine supplied by Valmet. The mill has a modern off-machine coating section, which increases flexibility. The folding boxboard produced is targeted especially at the Americas and global food service markets. Thanks to the new BM 1, Metsä Board’s paperboard capacity is over 2 million tonnes per year.

Our paperboard provides a lightweight and sustainable solution for brand owners and converters looking for a responsible packaging material for their fast food products. Our boards are made of fresh forest fibers which are a renewable raw material. We have both uncoated options for a natural look and coated options for superior print reproduction.
