Katrinefors mill

Katrinefors Mill was established in 1765 by Anders Rodin, who named the mill after his wife Anna Catrina Kryger. The mill is located on Lake Vänern in Mariestad, Sweden.

The mill has two paper machines, six converting lines and a deinking plant where we handle recycled paper used in the production process.

In Katrinefors mill we produce toilet tissue, household towels and industrial rolls. We have approximately 360 employees.

We operate sustainably

We are an active member of the local community. We employ a significant number of people and actively promote well-being at work. Our local involvement includes cooperation with schools, non-profit organisations, the media, decision-makers and partners such as KKAB, with whom we co-own a steam & power heating plant.

We continuously work to enhance the environmental sustainability. In our Katrinefors mill, the de-inking sludge is incinerated, which reduces the waste amount by 90%. The heat generated by this process is fully utilised e.g. for the central heating in the local community. The process also generates electricity that is being sold to third parties. As a result, we have managed to substantially reduce our CO2 emissions.

As a local corporate citizen, we also support selected local sports associations/events, as well as provide the possibility for external groups to visit our mills.

Did you know that...

  • a parent reel weighing about 3 000 kg takes 40 minutes to produce. It is enough for about 20 000 rolls of toilet paper. A lifetime need for a human is about 5 500 rolls.
  • the capacity of our paper machines is about 2 000 kilometer paper / day. For comparison: Sweden is 1570 kilometers long.
  • 75 tonnes of recovered newspapers is enough for 8 hours of production.
    a ton of paper is equivalent to about 14 trees.
  • studies show that a clean paper towel with high absorption capacity is the most hygienic way to dry your hands. Warm air dryers are not very efficient (consume a lot of energy) and is normally quite noisy.
  • baking and cooking paper promotes low fat cooking and helps to reduce food waste. After use, you can either burn or sort it as organic waste, because the paper is both biodegradable and compostable.
  • tissue and cooking papers are made from a renewable resource and that we always know the origin of the fresh wood fiber used in our products.
