Saiccor Mill is situated 50 km south of the port of Durban in Umkomaas, a small town in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. With a capacity of 800,000 tons per annum of sulphite DWP, it is the world’s single largest manufacturing site for DWP.
It also has a long history in DWP production, going back more than 60 years to 1955. Sappi hasn't owned the site for quite that long, but since acquiring the mill in 1989, Saiccor Mill has played a key role in establishing Sappi as the global market leader in DWP.
We achieve this high manufacturing throughput in sustainable style, too – the hardwood woodfibre (Eucalyptus and Acacia) we use in production comes from local, responsibly managed plantations.
