K+D visits cardboard mill of Mayr-Melnhof with customers

Cardboard is the most important raw material in the production of folding cartons. However, the differences in production are striking. In the production of folding cartons, 1000 units are used, in the production of cartonboard tons are used. For the delivery of folding cartons there are several pallet loads, for cartons truck loads as unit of quantity.

These dimensions and the entire manufacturing process were brought closer to an interested group of K+D customers so that they could follow the entire value chain of their packaging.

The journey to Baiersbronn in the Black Forest went by car to the Mayr-Melnhof fresh fiber plant. K+D AG uses various qualities of virgin fibre and recycled board, and virgin fibre board is widely used in the pharmaceutical industry.
