Metsä Tissue planning significant investment in UK tissue mill

Paper Solutions

Metsä Tissue is planning to invest in a new tissue mill in the UK. The plan consists of 240,000 tonnes of tissue paper production capacity, built in several phases during the upcoming decade. The plans are part of the company’s Future Mill programme to drive world class environmental performance in tissue production.

The production of the planned UK mill would be based on using sustainable fresh fibre pulp, and the first phase of the investment would be ready during 2025 to serve the professional and consumer tissue markets in the UK and Ireland.

‘Over the past couple of years, we have been developing a Future Mill concept in relation to our planned tissue mill expansion in Mariestad, Sweden. Our studies show that we will be able to utilise more efficient and better technology than today, which will make us more competitive and more environmentally efficient. We see great opportunities for growth in the UK market and are planning to supply the market locally based on our Future Mill concept,’ said Esa Kaikkonen, CEO, Metsä Tissue.

The mill concept is planned to be based on best available technologies, with a world class environmental performance. As the next step, the location of the mill is planned to be selected during the first half of 2022. The locations currently under investigation are Newark and Hull.
