In addition, Kotkamills has started preparations to procure external production capacity for laminating papers. The external capacity is planned to be available during the first half of 2018.

The Kotkamills group has been producing Saturating Base Kraft (laminating papers) in Tainionkoski, Imatra on Paper Machine 7 (PM 7) leased from Stora Enso Oyj since the separation of Kotkamills from Stora Enso in 2010. The operations are part of the Group's Industrial Products.

On July 3rd, 2017 The Company informed that Stora Enso Oyj has notified Kotkamills Oy that the leasing agreement concerning Tainionkoski PM7 will be terminated in accordance with its terms to expire at the end of 2018.
