The new market focus for products of Schweighofer Fiber is Asia. 100% of the total production (140.000 tons per year) will be exported, 80% (of it) to China, the rest will be exported to Taiwan, India, Indonesia and Japan.
The project "Rebuilding the Hallein site" was already started in September 2011 by the acquisition of the Schweighofer group. The capital expenditure amounted to 56 MEUR. Most of this amount was spent in wastewater treatment with combined biogas generation.
In order to ensure product quality and economic efficiency of the facility, quality assurance and internal logistics were also improved.
