There is a happy ending to the story of the former Arjowiggins mill in Wizernes in France, which was mothballed in 2015. The mill - now operating under the name of Wizpaper - will soon restart operations.

The company told EUWID it planned to start production of recycled corrugated case material in the coming weeks. The capacity of the machine is reportedly around 180,000 tpy.

The PM formerly produced woodfree coated paper and had a capacity of 140,000 tpy. In September 2018, entrepreneur Henri Bréban acquired the mill, which is located near Saint-Omer in northern France, from Sequana with the intention of rebuilding it to make corrugated case material. Bréban already owns the two printing and packaging firms Express Packaging and Express Découpe, which are not far away from the Wizpaper site.
