Revision and reconstruction work at the Ziegler Paper Mill has been successfully completed.
This year several revision and reconstruction projects took place at Ziegler Paper Mill using substantial investments and following a long-term investment strategy by the family-owned company in CH-Grellingen, near Basel. The work focused on the reconstruction of the roll cutting machine which was equipped with a new control system and a cutter. With the additional replacement of the drive, significant performance and usability improvements can be achieved. The first dry section of the paper machine (PM3) has been rebuilt in order to improve product quality. With these investments and actions, also work safety has increased and a further contribution to environmental protection has been achieved.
Coinciding with this year's revision, the complete shutdown of SAPPI Biberist was announced by SAPPI. Ziegler Paper Mill and the entire Swiss paper industry lose a collegial firm and a recognised paper producer. With that shut down, Ziegler Paper Mill remains the last Swiss producer of premium-quality fine papers for the graphic industry.
Ziegler Paper Mill is, after successful completion of the revision work, newly and freshly ready for delivery and pleased to be able to supply its customers in the usual manner - with high quality Swiss paper products.
