History

Together the three mills within the Arctic Paper S.A Group have 360 years of experience and expertise in making fine paper. Arctic Paper Mochenwangen GmbH was established in 1868, Arctic Paper Munkedals AB three years later and the mill in Kostrzyn was set up in 1958. Today�s Arctic Paper S.A. origins from the Trebruk AB Group that was established in 1983 with Munkedals AB as one of the mills. Trebruk opened up sales offices all over Europe and in 1993 Trebruk acquired Kostrzyn mill from the Polish state. Up until then the polish mill has been manufacturing both pulp and paper products. After the take over Trebruk Abs operation were streamlined and the company only produced graphical paper. Since the purchase of Arctic Paper Kostrzyn S.A. an extensive process of integration has taken place, a process that got even more important by the acquisition of Arctic Paper Mochenwangen GmbH
