The integrated plant produces chlorine-free sulphite pulp from beech and spruce wood, mainly for our own paper production; some of it is also sold to external customers. Ehingen produces a range of coated paper in sheet and roll format in matt or silk-matt finish and Fusion Topliner.
Our more than 500 employees work with the latest technology and guarantee an excellent production process as well as outstanding product quality. We use an automated process control system that merges the complex workflows. A computerised ordering system and the production control system furthermore ensure that the final product is always perfectly matched to customer demands.
In addition to the optimisation of our processes and systems, our corporate policy focuses in particular on measures to reduce environmental pollution and increase energy efficiency. Our workforce contributes significantly to continuous improvement in production process, product quality and environmental performance with their ideas and their engagement.
