Oppboga Bruk, the Swedish producer of multiply paperboard for sign, display and packaging, has announced it will invest in a new lamination production line.
In a statement from the company, the new lamination investment will continue its growth path into new markets and materials.
According to Oppboga Bruk managing director, Andrew Robinson, the new and highly customized lamination machine will be one of the most modern lamination lines in Europe. It is the company’s largest investment in over 50 years and will allow Oppboga Bruk to continue its growth path into new markets and materials.
“We expect to increase production by more than 50%. Simultaneously, the investment will allow us to explore new wood fibre material constructs and maximise opportunities within the packaging segment, in particular by replacing plastics with paper and board combinations.”
The new lamination production line, which is more energy efficient and produces less waste than its predecessor, is scheduled to start producing in Q4 2024.
Oppboga Bruk has been producing high quality paperboards from their mill in Fellingsbro, Sweden, for more than 120 years. The company is the leading producer of multiply paperboard for signs and displays. Businesses from all over the world use their products for signage and packaging of premium products.
Oppboga Bruk seeks to replace the plastics used for signs and packaging with its paperboards and offering fully recyclable FSC-certified paperboard for indoor and outdoor signage and display.
The family-run holding company Ecovest (fully owned by Alexander Meyer) holds all shares in KAPAG and has a majority stake in the Swedish producer Oppboga Bruk.
