It currently rents 2.5 million hectares of forest in Komi, grows 8 million pine and spruce seedlings in the largest nursery in the North-West of Russia, while its production capacity is 1.3 million finished products.


Klaus Peller comments:


- We are not be satisfied with what has already been achieved . We have a lot to do, for example, the second stage of modernization of the thermal power plant. The plant's investment projects made it possible to improve the life of both the plant itself and the city of Syktyvkar, where it is based. Mondi SLPK not only produces paper and cardboard, but also provides 17% of Komi's need for electricity»
