UPM Newsprint Mill Site to be Revamped and Expanded

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): A Turkish firm which had taken over the Shotton newsprint mill site from UPM announced plans to redevelop and expand the site. The buyer, Eren Holding, is believed to have submitted the proposal to Flintshire Council. The site will produce containerboard and tissue products. In addition, it will build a new Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant at the site, which in turn is expected to create around 850 additional jobs.

The scoping request calls for demolition of some of the existing buildings, in a bid to create the second largest containerboard campus and the most technologically advanced paper mill in the UK. The new cardboard production facility will use 100% recycled paper. By boosting the production, the company expects to reduce UK’s dependence on imports of containerboard and tissue products. At the same time, it will reduce the external supply of recycled paper.

Effective 1st October, 2021, the Shotton Mill Limited will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Turkish Eren Holding Group, with an annual turnover of over EUR 1.8 billion and total assets in excess of EUR 2.1 billion.
