MMK mill Kolicevo celebrates 100-year anniversary
22.07.2020 - Company / Mills
This success story began in 1920. Today, our Kolicevo Karton mill in Slovenia is one of the leading providers of cartonboard and liner products for the Southeast European market. The mill’s clear, long-term strategy, a comprehensive product portfolio and the strong team spirit of the nearly 400 employees have been instrumental in making this outstanding development possible.
Flexibility and quality
Kolicevo Karton began operating after the First World War. Since then it has experienced continuous and sustained growth, and has always been able to respond to changing market requirements: While in the early years the mill produced printing paper for books, it now concentrates on the production of cartonboard for the food and pharmaceuticals sector. Its aim has always been the same: To provide the right quality for the customer. Since 1998, Kolicevo Karton has been part of MM Karton with a focus on increased service to Southeast European markets.
Kolicevo mill – an all-rounder
Today, Kolicevo Karton produces about 270,000 tonnes of packaging material annually on two machines. The option of operating the two cartonboard machines in swing mode allows the mill to flexibly produce virgin fibre cartonboard, recycled cartonboard or liner, depending on market demand. Kolicevo can react quickly to current trends and translate them into new packaging solutions. With its virgin fibre Kraft qualities, the mill is offering a compelling response to the high demand for brown packaging material.
The growth and success of the Kolicevo mill is based on constant optimisation and the commitment, know-how and team spirit of our employees. Some of the working families at the mill go back five generations! The declared goal for the coming years is to continue on a course of consistent growth and sustainable products.
“We want to thank all of our customers for their trust and support and look forward to our continued intensive cooperation and successful partnership. We owe a special gratitude to our employees for their outstanding work. Thanks to our team spirit, we will shape the future according to plan: Another 100 successful years of Kolicevo Karton!” Peter Putz, Mill Director Kolicevo.
