Stora Enso has completed the acquisition of the Netherland based company De Jong Packaging Group, one of the largest corrugated packaging producers in the Benelux countries. The acquisition announced in September 2022 with an enterprise value of approximately EUR1020 million was closed following regulatory clearances and employee consultation.
