Paper-based packaging firm Smurfit Kappa has commissioned an advanced new paper machine (PM6) at the Los Reyes Paper Mill site in Mexico.

Paper-based packaging firm Smurfit Kappa has commissioned an advanced new paper machine (PM6) at the Los Reyes Paper Mill site in Mexico.

The move is in line with the company’s strategy to invest in sustainable technology in the country.

The PM6 produces recycled containerboard and is expected to enable the company to strengthen its offering for the agricultural and electrical appliance sectors.

“Mexico is a market with strong growth potential, which is key to our operations in the region.”

Smurfit Kappa Americas CEO Juan Guillermo Castaneda said: “As the leading supplier of paper-based packaging in the Americas and the largest group with a pan-regional presence, we are pleased to continue bringing the latest industry innovations to Mexico.

“Mexico is a market with strong growth potential, which is key to our operations in the region. We continue to invest in this country to boost our competitiveness and offer our customers the very best in sustainable packaging.”

The company recently invested in a modernisation project for converting plants.

When combined with the new PM6, the modernisation project is anticipated to significantly increase customer capabilities.

Smurfit Kappa Mexico CEO Jorge Alberto Angel said: “Smurfit Kappa has long been committed to best practices in responsibly supplying paper for the sustainable manufacture of board and packaging.”

In addition to the Los Reyes Paper Mill, the company operates two other containerboard mills and 15 converting plants in the country.
