We have brought together innovation, flexibility and experience in our business concept
Skjern Papirfabrik is a make-to-order manufacturer with more than 40 years of experience. Our primary products are cardboard cores and tubes, liner and paper, which are delivered as semi-manufactures for further processing. We only use recycled paper in our production, which operates on a round-the-clock basis 355 days a year. More than 90 per cent of the production is exported. All our products are manufactured in close cooperation with our customers, and we make a continuous effort to optimise and further develop our products. Being highly flexible, our production can be switched to various qualities.
High quality, flexibility and just-in-time deliveries actually constitute some of the basic elements of the mill customer service policy, supported by optimally working logistics and in close co-operation with carriers.
It is rewarding to take a social and ethical responsibility
We make a continuous effort to reduce the negative impacts on our internal as well as on our external environment. We only use recycled paper, and the factory has its own wastewater treatment plant, which cleans the process water before discharge. In our production, we only make use of environmentally approved additives and safe ancillary materials such as potato starch. We are convinced that our concern for the external environment as well as our focus on staff development, human rights, health and safety and other aspects of social responsibility affect our business in a positive direction. Skjern Papirfabrik is environmentally approved under DS/EN ISO 14001.
