The Rottneros Group produces paper pulp at two pulp mills. Chemical pulp is produced at Vallvik, while mechanical pulp is produced at the mill in Rottneros. At Rottneros Mill the SilviPak brand food packaging is produced in small scale by the Rottneros Packaging subsidiary. The Group has a wood supply company in Latvia as well.
Two categories of mechanical pulp are manufactured at Rottneros’ Mill: CTMP and groundwood pulp. These pulps, of which there are 25 or so product variants with different qualities, account for approximately 40 per cent of the Group’s production. Around 125,000 tonnes were produced in 2013. The mill has 90 employees. With this level of staffing, practical production capacity is around 150,000 tonnes.
Vallvik Mill produces two grades of long-fibre sulphate pulp: fully bleached sulphate pulp, ECF (Elemental Chlorine Free) and unbleached sulphate pulp, UKP (Unbleached Kraft Pulp). The mill has an annual manufacturing capacity of approximately 250,000 tonnes and around 150 employees. In 2013, 208,800 tonnes were produced.
Rottneros' Swedish mills import a portion of their raw material mainly from Latvia through the subsidiary Rottneros Baltic SIA. These imports are mainly for Vallvik Mill. Rottneros Baltic SIA is a strategic part of the Rottneros Group's raw material supply system. The company also assists in wood procurement from the rest of the Baltic region, Russia and Belarus.
The workforce numbers are 5 in Latvia.
