Stockstadt am Main in Bavaria, Germany, is home to the chemical pulp and paper mill Sappi Stockstadt GmbH, one of seven Sappi Europe paper mills across the continent.
Sappi Stockstadt Mill was founded in 1898 as a chemical pulp mill and is one of the largest employers in the Untermain region in Bavaria. Paper machine 1 was put into operation in 1963, paper machine 2 in 1970 and the coating machine in the early 1990s. Our paper is used for the production of high-quality calendars, picture and art books, amongst other items.
Over 700 employees and 40 apprentices produce up to 145,000 tonnes of bleached chemical pulp for own consumption and market pulp and 445,000 tonnes of coated and uncoated woodfree paper each year. Our factory also includes its own power station and waste water treatment plant.
In addition to measures to improve environmental performance, our company policies also focus on optimising our quality and service processes, as well as increasing the efficiency of our plants. The ideas and suggestions from our workforce and their work are therefore instrumental for the continuous improvement of our production processes and product quality.

Sappi Stockstadt Mill was already part of Stockstadt, but as the mill that was far removed from the community. Today, our mill is at the centre of Stockstadt and is, and always has been, a key employer, not just in Stockstadt but across the Untermain region in Bavaria. We act responsibly to reduce our impact on the environment and strengthen and support the further development of our employees.
By co-operating with schools and nurseries and providing information about the factory through tours for example, we play a active part in our community.
- We regularly participate in various training fairs in the Untermain region of Bavaria and inform people about the vocational training and career opportunities at Sappi. For example, we take part in the Berufswegekompass ('Career Paths Compass') scheme in Aschaffenburg.
- We also co-operate with the Aschaffenburg University of Applied Sciences.
