SCA Invests in New Corrugated Board Plant in France
Stockholm, Sweden, 10 July 2007 -- SCA is to invest EUR 46 million in a new corrugated board plant outside Nantes in France. The new production plant will go into operation in 2009 and replace the present plant in the area.

The new plant will enable SCA to raise its level of service to the companies in the region and offer customized packaging solutions, including high-quality printing.

The decision to invest in a new plant in Nantes was made to meet increasing demands from the customers, but John Williams, president of SCA’s Packaging Europe business area, also points out other important factors behind the investment.

“We see opportunities to grow in the France Atlantique region with an important customer group within the food industry. The new plant will meet the stringent hygiene standards in the production environment, which are crucial for this customer group. We are creating a highly flexible plant that will also comply with SCA’s high sustainability requirements and offer our employees an improved working environment,” says Williams.

The investment in Nantes will include equipment to reduce the company's carbon dioxide and other emissions. The new plant will also provide a major improvement in wastewater treatment.

SCA’s packaging plant in Nantes has approximately 180 employees.
