By spring 2014, the firm plans to start up a 180 million m2/yr BHS corrugator. The 2.5 m wide corrugator will be able to make three- and five-ply corrugated board with flute types ranging from F to B and C. Its maximum speed is 350 m/min.
The facility, which will occupy a 40,000 m2site, will also house several converting lines.
The Ulyanovsk plant will be P.M. Packaging's first corrugated facility. The firm currently operates two converting facilities - a corrugated box plant and a folding box plant - in nearby Chelyabinsk and Sverdlovsk.
