Mondi has permanently quit producing recycled corrugated case material at its site in Ceske Budejovice. The converting part of the site will continue to operate.
The Mondi Group has permanently shut down its Czech recycled corrugated case material mill in Ceske Budejovice on 21 December last year. This was confirmed to EUWID by a company spokesman.
The paper and packaging producer had acquired the Czech site, which also houses a converting mill, together with the Ansbach converting mill in Germany from Austrian Duropack in early November 2012. At the end of November, the company announced plans to shut down the paper mill in Ceske Budejovice that produced recycled containerboard with an annual capacity of around 105,000 t. At the time, no time frame was given for the closure.
As regards the future of the mill’s assets, Mondi said it was currently reviewing the options. The production of corrugated board at Ceske Budejovice is to be continued. The converting mill employs 120 persons.
