German Papierfabrik August Koehler plans to enter the market for flexible packaging paper. The company says it intends to invest more than €300m in its Kehl mill for this purpose. The project is to create at least 100 new jobs.
A new specialty paper machine will constitute the core investment at the Kehl site. The new PM will have a capacity of significantly more than 100,000 tpy, according to Koehler.
