August 2, 2022 () –

German papermaker Delkeskamp Verpackungs¬≠werke will finally close its Nortrup paper mill in Germany. The company announced in March 2022 that it would close the containerboard mill, but continued production there due to its customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.

Delkeskamp blames the enormous increase in energy costs as one reason for closing the mill, and the company said it can neither predict nor plan for forecast future energy prices and other costs.

The Nortrup mill makes about 135,000 tpy of containerboard and employs 70 people.
