Tetra Pak opens a new packaging material factory in Finland
Tetra Pak has inaugurated its new packaging material factory in Finland. The factory, located in the town of Imatra, with a planned capacity of 500 million packages per year, will expand Tetra Pak’s gable top capacity for Northern Europe.

The laminated paper board used to produce the packaging material comes from the Imatra paper mills only six km from the location of the new factory, and the short distance helps reduce the CO2 emissions for the transportation of paperboard to the factory.

The production facilities are expected to be ISO 14001 certified during Quarter 1, 2013, and plans are underway to implement World Class Manufacturing (WCM) practices at the plant. ISO 14001 is an environmental management system standard; WCM is a tool to help drive and visualise improvements in various areas, including cost, efficiency, competence, maintenance, availability, quality, safety and environment.
