Barcelona Cartonboard's Mill

Barcelona Cartonboard has the largest white-lined chipboard mill on the Iberian Peninsula.
The mill produces board for high-quality uses, such as packaging of food, confectioneries, pharmaceuticals, detergent, household and graphical products.

Quantum Capital Partners acquired Stora Enso Barcelona mill in 2015 and rebranded it as Barcelona Cartonboard. Subsequently, 15 m€ were invested to improve board quality and develop new grades, such as GC2. In January 2017, Barcelona Cartonboard’s investment of
5 m€ in a new shoe press enables a 15% increase in production capacity. Further investments over the next 3 years will be made on a winding machine, dryers and sheeting.
