Papierfabrik Niederauer Muehle plans to continue LWC production on PM 10 and convert PM 4 to recycled containerboard production.
Germany's recycled containerboard manufacturer Niederauer Muehle plans to take over the LWC paper mill in Walsum. According to the company's management, it has entered exclusive talks with the insolvency administrator of Walsum Papier to buy the Norske Skog facility.
Under the new ownership, Walsum Papier would continue producing LWC on PM 10. In addition, Niederauer Muehle would convert the mill's PM 4, which is standing idle since December 2013, to white-top testliner production.
