Rengo Co Ltd has completed construction work to renew a containerboard (linerboard) machine at the site of its consolidated subsidiary Marusan Paper Mfg Co Ltd in Fukushima Prefecture.

“More than 40 years has elapsed since the PM6 machine was first installed in 1973, and it deteriorated and was damaged by the Great East Japan Earthquake, making replacement with new equipment an urgent matter,” Rengo explained, adding that PM6 has already been shut down.

Built at an investment cost of US$217.2 million (¥26 billion), the recently completed PM8 for linerboard is compatible with lightweight containerboard.
