Own paper supply.

Progroup currently produces high-quality containerboard at two sites in Germany, based exclusively on recovered paper. The two high-performance plants safeguard the continuous supply of products to the nine corrugated board plants. Progroup supplies a wide range of different paper varieties with grammages of from 60 to 230g/m2. The special technology of the PM2 paper machine makes it possible to produce light, fibre-saving papers from the Next FibreⓇ brand for “Next Generation” corrugated board that is lighter and powerful at the same time.


Created for many assignments. Programmed for strong performance.

The requirements placed on kraft papers today extend in two directions: specialist papers for specific applications and less fibre use while retaining consistent strength properties. Progroup is able to meet both demands with the K-line. Depending on where the packaging is going to be used, priority is given to different strength criteria for the papers and corrugated board – such as penetration resistance and stackability. Progroup uses four steps to adapt the papers to suit the relevant performance requirements.


The “green” basis for a corrugated board generation.

Recovered paper is the most important raw material used in the manufacture of containerboard today. Global demand is rising – the supply is becoming scarcer and the price will continue to fluctuate at a high level. To ensure that corrugated board also remains competitive as a product in the future, Propapier has with the SLW-line developed containerboard that saves resources and is strong at the same time.
