Heinzel will rebuild PM 11 at its Laakirchen mill to produce recycled lightweight liner and fluting

Laakirchen's PM 11 will start containerboard production in 2023
19 Oct 2021 − 

The company is to withdraw from the publication paper market in 2023.

Publication paper and packaging paper company Heinzel Group announces that it will rebuild PM 11 at its Laakirchen mill in Austria to produce lightweight recycled corrugated case material. PM 11 has been producing SC paper 40-60 g/m2 based on recycled fibre for advertising material, magazines and catalogues and has an annual output capacity of 330,000 tpy. After the rebuild the machine will have a capacity of 550,000 tpy. Heinzel says that containerboard products from PM 11 will be available on the market for the first time in mid-2023.

Converting its PM 11 will mean that Heinzel will withdraw entirely from the publication paper market in 2023. However, the company says that it will continue to "reliably supply those customers who purchase SC paper" from the company today, which is important "given the current paper shortage on the market".
