Case Study

Inhouse core preparation service with Ahlstrom-Munksjö Italy

Sonoco Alcore has in partnership Ahlstrom-Munksjö Italy created and established an inhouse core preparation service for internal core handling. Through close collaboration between the two companies, we developed a tailor-made solution to match customer needs. Nowadays, Sonoco employers handle the full core preparation service at the premises of the Ahlstrom-Munksjö Italy´s mill.   This service is operating very positively and provides multiple benefits to our partner. The mill can now put a large focus on their main business, paper manufacturing. Key factors for the success have been a strong partnership working closely together, teamwork from preparation to execution and state-of-the art equipment. (March 2019)
