Žilina mill

Žilina mill belongs to the Central and Eastern Europe region where Metsä Tissue has two production mills, one in Žilina, Slovakia, and the other in Krapkowice, Poland.

The Žilina mill’s history dates back to 1905 when it began producing cellulose for paper and synthetic fibre products. The production of sulphite alcohol began in 1941. Since 1983, the mill has been producing hygienic paper tissue and has been part of Metsä Tissue since 2006 after the acquisition of Tento a.s.

The mill produces toilet tissues, household towels and handkerchiefs.

Some 315 employees work in production, maintenance, logistics, product and process development, business and administration.

The mill has two paper machines, PM1 and PM2, six converting lines and one deinking line. It produces 65,000 tonnes of converted products per year. The total output of both PMs is 84,000 tonnes.

Since March 2011, part of the mill’s electricity has been produced with the hydroelectric power plant at the VVB Žilina dam and currently accounts for some 70% of the mill´s total electricity consumption.
