Leipa to complete startup period for white-top testliner PM 5 at its Schwedt mill in Germany

LEIPA will soon complete the startup period of its PM 5 for uncoated white top testliner production at its mill in Schwedt, Germany.

LEIPA Group CEO Peter Probst: “The demand for white top liner remains consistently high and the trend is rising. Prices are at a high level as well. These factors result in excellent conditions for the market launch of the PM 5.”

LEIPA will have developed a one-stop shop with the PM 3 and PM 5, offering an annual total capacity of 700,000 tons of coated and uncoated white top testliner.

Christian Schürmann, COO of LEIPA Georg Leinfelder GmbH said: “The entire project team has done a great job rebuilding the PM 5. We will produce a state-of-the-art testliner on this machine – the world’s most powerful of its kind – and start with our first deliveries in April.”


LEIPA Group GmbH manufactures magazine paper and packaging products. The Company offers coated and uncoated white testliners, boards, grammages, and packaging products for pharmaceutical, medicine, food, and other industry.
