The newly installed film press replaces the conventional size press and offers numerous benefits. For example, the paper machine's speed is increased even further, while quality is improved and the product range is extended. The traditional range of one-side coated papers can now be produced with an even more selective and consistent surface quality. The new components of the plant are designed to allow for further increases in production capacity in the future.

In 2013, the company already invested in a film press for the Vevce mill in Slovenia, thus ensuring both mills' future competitiveness.

These investments also reflect B&B's motto “Think & Act Green”. Both the Niklasdorf and the Vevce mills already show industry-leading measures in terms of environmental protection. Thanks to the investments made, further energy savings will be achieved in the future by reducing the required steam and electricity consumption. Other resource-saving aspects, such as savings in particular production materials and increased machine efficiency, also contribute to accomplishing this aim.

The investments at both sites in recent years have increased the annual capacity of the B&B Group to 190,000 tonnes. B&B’s focus will remain on high-grade speciality papers for labels and flexible packaging for the consumer packaged goods industry.
