By 2025, the share of Ilim Group’s board supplies to the southwest of China will have increased three-fold from 5% to 16%, which is another 100,000 tons of the finished products.
Stepped-up deliveries will make the company a key player on the pulp and paper market in the south-western China. The supply volumes will be boosted partly owing to the products from Ilim Group’s new pulp and paper mill (the KLB Mill) in Ust-Ilimsk. The production capacity will amount to 600,000 tons of KLB per year.
Chengdu Peibaobo Paper Co. is one of Ilim Group’s partners in the People’s Republic of China. The company is a large manufacturer of packaging and a service operator in China. In liaison with the Chinese company, Ilim also plans to enter the market of Laos and supply packaging materials to the FMCG market.
