Cross-functional, pro-active collaboration at Stanger Mill
COVID-19 led to the closure of borders, airports and trading ports. And this, in turn, led to the shutting down of almost all the supply chain channels for the sale of printing and writing paper, to a point where Stanger Mill was forced to take commercial downtime.
In South Africa, we’re using our leveraging our novel Xylex technology – acquired in 2017 – to progress the extraction of sugars from woodfibre to produce xylitol and furfural.
