In 2020, Burgo Group’s Verzuolo Mill converted their existing paper machine into a board machine, a decision made to meet the market’s growing demand for packaging material. Converting to an Old Corrugated Container (OCC) grade allowed the mill to transition to producing high-quality container board grades while using minimal virgin fiber and with low operating costs. Although the rebuild project was extensive, everyone involved was very pleased with the results once the machine was brought online.
