PM2 has a history tracing back to 1953 when it was installed by Korsnäs AB. Over the years several investments have been made. Since year 2000 more than 65 MSEK have been invested including the major ones, a new headbox and short circulation in 2006 and an extension of the drive control system in 2012.

When Billerud AB and Korsnäs AB merged in late 2012 a condition to receive regulatory approval from the European Union was to divest the operation and business of PM2.

As a result of this condition a carving out process began and as from 1 August 2013 PM2 was formally taken over by SwedPaper AB.

Bleached Sack and Kraft Paper


Integrated supplies from the Korsnäs Mill complex: pulp NBSK and BHKP, steam, water as well as effluent treatment services. The paper machine’s concept includes several tools for producing unique and customized paper properties.

In the pulp preparation area there are different ways of beating and treating the fibres before the pulp is pumped to the paper machine.

Wet creping is usedto achieve a paper with a rough surface for friction properties, high porosity and formability. The Clupak unit is used to increase the stretch in the machine direction of the paper. Finally a glazing cylinder is available to increase the smoothness of the surface to improve the printability.
