Metsä Tissue, the tissue paper business of the forest industry group Metsä Group, is planning to invest in a new tissue mill with a capacity of 240.000 tpy in the UK.

The mill will be built in several phases during the upcoming decade and will use sustainable fresh fibre pulp. The first phase of the investment is scheduled to be ready during 2025, Metsä Tissue said. The tissue paper is destined for customers in the UK and Ireland.

As the next step, the company will be looking into a possible location of the mill, which will be selected during the first half of 2022. The locations currently under investigation are Newark and Hull.
