Skjern Paper was conceived as a sustainable paper mill, and took shape on a bare field in western Jutland near the river Skjern Å, which was intended to provide the factory with ample water for its production processes. After a couple of years of preparations, we were ready to launch production in 1966. Ever since the company’s start, we have produced high-quality products on the basis of green, sustainable and environmentally friendly values – in line with the idea that yesterday’s waste can become tomorrow’s resource.
