The modern board mill Metsä Board Kyro is celebrating its 150th anniversary
FINLAND (News release) -- Metsä Board's Kyro mill will be 150 years old this year, 2020. The wood grinding plant along the Kyröskoski rapids was started up in 1870. Since then, the Kyro mill has manufactured market wood pulp, groundwood, sawn timber, various papers and paperboard for international markets. Today, it is a modern and efficient mill that produces high-quality folding boxboard for Metsä Board, part of Metsä Group.

"Kyro people are proud of their mill. Our staff have always lived with changes and challenging times have been overcome by working together. People commit themselves to the mill for a long time, with families often having several generations involved. This has positively influenced the kind of mill Kyro is today," says Petri Huiko, VP and mill manager of Metsä Board Kyro.

"Continued development is key to the success, efficiency and production quality of our paperboards and we are proud to continue to develop Kyro as generations before us have done," added Petri.

Last year, Metsä Board Kyro began manufacturing a new plastic free eco-barrier board for food and food service packaging and introduced artificial intelligence (AI) to its quality control. In addition, the mill's board machine finishing area is presently being modernised. The rebuild includes a new reeler, a winder and the renewal of the reel broke handling system. The investment value is EUR 20 million and the new machinery is scheduled to start during the autumn of 2021.
