– The construction phase of Metsä Tissue's three-year Polish investment programme has taken a major step forward with work initiated this week on the converting and warehousing hall of the company's Krapkowice mill site. The paper machine has been under construction since June.
The programme, announced in April this year, includes a sizeable increase in paper making and converting capacity as well as brand new rental converting and warehousing buildings at the company's Krapkowice mill. The investment is designed to further improve delivery service, flexibility and overall supply reliability.
Preparations have proceeded smoothly and on schedule. “The project for the converting and warehousing building will be carried out in partnership with the Goodman integrated global property group, specialists in developing and managing industrial properties such as warehouses,” says Juhana Kalpio, SVP Supply Chain.The building project will also involve a number of local and regional companies, thereby benefiting the local community.
“It is rewarding to have proceeded from the drawing board to the construction phase and to see the very first elements of the buildings going up,” says Mariusz Jedrzejewski, VP Regional Operations. “Already at this stage I would like to thank both the authorities and other companies involved for being very supportive and cooperative during the process,” Jedrzejewski adds.
