RDM to transfer its serviboard production
RDM Group has decided to stop producing Serviboard in its Arnsberg mill and transfer it to Santa Giustina, a mill located in the North of Italy.
The decision takes place after years of continuous development of our production units and portfolio offering, adjusting these to the market needs and conditions, with the ambition to become the partner of choice.
Santa Giustina has an annual capacity of 250.000 t of GD and GT board and has gone through a number of significant investments over several years, so as to be today fully equipped to carry on the image created on the market by Arnsberg, a position and reputation recognized by the whole European cartonboard market.
From Santa Giustina RDM is today able to widen the range of SERVIBOARD grammage offering.
With this move the Group aims to strengthen the security of supply of our WLC offering via a multi-mill concept where GD/GT will be supplied by Santa Giustina and Blendecques, while Villa S. Lucia and Arnsberg will be fully dedicated to produce coated liners, the latest from next year onwards.
The last two production cycles of SERVIBOARD in Arnsberg will start on November 6th (deadline for the orders October 31th till 12:00 am) and December 12th, 2017 (deadline for the orders December 6thtill 12:00 am).
