Achieve excellent strength with northern softwood pulps

Achieve excellent strength with northern softwood pulps  

Does your product require excellent tensile strength attributes? Look no further.

We manufacture bleached softwood kraft pulp from slow-growing pine (Pinus Silvestris) and spruce (Picea Abies) tempered by the demanding Nordic nature. These trees produce fibres that are long and slender.

Northern softwood has been the backbone of our business for over 100 years. Take full advantage of our expertise and have your paper, board or tissue just the way you want it.
