The Rosenthal mill is located in the town of Blankenstein, Germany approximately 300 kilometers south of Berlin. The kraft pulp produced at the Rosenthal mill is a long-fibered softwood pulp produced by a sulphate cooking process. The Rosenthal mill has the capability of producing both ‘totally chlorine free’ and ‘elemental chlorine free’ pulp. Kraft pulp is valued for its reinforcing role in mechanical printing papers and is sought after by producers of paper for the publishing industry, primarily for magazines and advertising materials. Kraft pulp is also an ingredient for tissue manufacturing. The Rosenthal mill produces pulp for reinforcement fibers to the specifications of various customers.

Corporate Strategy The company’s corporate strategy is to create shareholder value by focusing on the expansion of its asset and earnings base through organic growth and acquisitions, primarily in Europe and North America.
