The virgin fibre-based cartonboard grades produced at the Eerbeek mill are characterised by consistently high quality and application safety and are mainly used in food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical packaging and in other high-quality applications.
Tradition and Modernity
At Eerbeek, the paper making centre of the Netherlands, industrial production of folding cartonboard began in 1910. This MM Karton production site optimally combines state-of-the-art technology and processes with the expert knowledge, motivation and dedication of its employees. The result: high-quality folding cartonboard and satisfied customers.
Environment and Society
At the Eerbeek mill, environmental protection is an important priority and has been an integral part of the company's corporate culture and policy for many years. While environmental awareness is consistently being developed and encouraged in all areas, measures to protect the environment are not limited to production alone; they also cover both upstream and downstream areas of the supply chain, including purchasing and logistics.
The FSC and PEFC certification of the Eerbeek mill are one example of how a sustainable cartonboard life cycle can be guaranteed.
With respect to environment and sustainability, the concerns of customers, employees, suppliers and residents are already taken into consideration during the planning stage of all our projects. By adhering to these principles at all times, we are in a position to offer products that are economically and ecologically valuable in the long-term.
Mayr-Melnhof Eerbeek, Netherlands, was certified in early 2013 for its excellent energy management according to ISO 50001. This was achieved by continuous improvements in energy efficiency, mainly in the steam section of the mill?s power plant.
