GMUND AM TEGERNSEE, Germany, March 27, 2014 (Press Release) -New rollers improve the wet section and ensure high-quality and homogeneous distribution of the pulp on the smaller of the Gmund Paper Mill's two paper machines. "We constantly improve our machines to enhance their efficiency and effectiveness. This paper machine runs and runs - and it has been doing so for more than 125 years", explains fourth-generation papermaker Florian Kohler.

The machine was used to manufacture papers for the Bavarian royal court in the 19th century and for Abu Dhabi's governing house in the 20th century. And it most recently produced 100%-cotton paper for the Cannes Film Festival.

Gmund has consistently prioritized quality for the past 185 years. The machine runs more slowly than conventional paper machines and produces a peerlessly high-quality paper. Each sheet is manually examined before it leaves Gmund and begins its journey to Los Angeles or Tokyo, where the paper undergoes further processing to become company brochures, packaging for the cosmetics or foodstuffs industry, invitation cards or business stationery.

The manufacturing site is located in the town of Gmund at Lake Tegernsee in southern Germany, where Gmund's impassioned papermakers rely on ultramodern technology to produce creatively designed papers.
