Munksjö Group


Munksjö Oyj is an international specialty paper company. We produce select specialty papers, which are central elements in the design and manufacturing processes for our customers. For example, our unique product offering includes decor paper, release paper, electrotechnical paper, abrasive backings, graphic and industrial paper and interleaving paper. Today, we are one of the world’s leading players within several of these product areas. We are approximately 3,000 employees, integrating with our customers’ operations throughout the world. Together, we form a global service organisation, where customer focus and innovation should characterise our entire operation.

Munksjö is a suitable symbol for Nordic industrialisation, which gained momentum in the mid-1800s exactly when Munksjö was founded as part of what is probably the most Nordic industry of all – the paper industry. We have since then expanded from a Nordic company to an international specialty paper company with global reach. In 2013 Munksjö Oyj was created, when Munksjö AB and Ahlstrom Corporation’s business area Label and Processing was combined.
