"This rebuild is one of the most important strategic decisions we have made in the course of 80 years long history of the mill. We are pleased that this project is going to be completed by Valmet, a global leader in the supply of process technology in the paper industry. I strongly believe in the success and bright future of Umka Cardboard Mill, with planned capacity of over 200,000 tonnes, further quality improvements and wider product portfolio,” says Milos Ljusic, Managing Director of Umka.

"The co-operation between Valmet’s and Umka’s teams has been excellent. Together, we built up a solution which will help Umka increase production capacity and improve their end product quality," says Pekka Turtinen, Senior Sales Manager at Valmet.
