Helsinki, Finland, 04 July 2007 -- Stora Enso is investing EUR 15 million to upgrade board manufacturing at its Imatra mills in Finland to meet customers' developing quality requirements. The project is scheduled to start in July 2007 and be completed in September 2008.

"This investment will secure Imatra's long-term competitiveness in liquid packaging board and enable the mill to satisfy its customers' increasing quality demands," he said.
