For the Polish market, Norske Skog has appointed Paperboard, based in Warsaw, as their exclusive representative for sales of containerboard in this fast-growing market. Although a relatively young company, the Paperboard- team has decades of experience and a large network in the Polish paper- and packaging industry.

Marketing Director of Norske Skog Bruck, Michael Schramböck says: “Poland will be an important market for Norske Skog, and we are very pleased to have Paperboard on our side there. They know our future customers and their needs, and that is a big plus.”

Norske Skog will enter the European packaging market at the end of 2022, when the converted PM3 at Norske Skog Bruck in Austria will start producing recycled containerboard under the brandname Strato. Almost one year later Norske Skog Golbey in France will follow, when their converted PM1 will start production. Both mills will produce Strato Liner3 and Strato Fluting. With local organizations in Austria, France, Germany and Italy, Norske Skog is well placed to provide customers in most European markets with the products and services they require.

Tomasz Bachniak, VP of Paperboard says: “The Polish packaging market is developing fast, growing fast; there are a lot of opportunities for a new, independent supplier, like Norske Skog. At Paperboard we are very excited about introducing the company, the conversion projects, and the products. I know the organization from within, their dedication to their products and customers – I’m sure that together we’ll be able to create a solid position for Norske Skog in this exciting market. We look forward to starting in January!”
