Rengo has confirmed the completion of the conversion of its containerboard machine at Kanazu Mill in Awara-shi, Fukui Prefecture so that it can now run both fluting and liner. In addition to conversion of the machine, the stock preparation process has also been revamped to further improve product quality.
Currently, Rengo Group produces containerboard at six mills in Japan. This conversion was conducted as part of the work currently underway to restructure the production system and consolidate to five mills. Consolidation will increase the operating rates of paper mills,and at the same time, improve the supply and demand balance of liner and fluting, thereby further strengthening the foundation of the paper business.
