Founded in 1685, Holmen Iggesund has been striving for quality and innovation from day one. In 1963 we began manufacturing paperboard for packaging under the brand name Invercote. It was a strategic choice to either play it safe and manufacture tissue paper, or start up paperboard for packaging at a time when there was no regional market for it and little local know-how about the technology used. Boldness and innovation are at the core of the company culture.
Holmen Iggesund is a company steeped in sustainability and, as part of the forest industry group Holmen, we own more than 1.3 million hectares of forest in Sweden. We care for every tree during its century long journey from seedling to paperboard. This allows us to offer products made of pure virgin fiber. Invercote and Incada are manufactured in two state-of-the-art mills: Iggesund Mill in Sweden and Workington Mill in United Kingdom.
Our care for our customers and their businesses goes far beyond this product offering. We also provide a broad range of services, support and advice. And we care about the environment, all the way from our forests to the consumers. That’s because we believe black figures are best grown from green assets.
