Section: Walki Group
/INS . In May 2015, we announced that Mondi Group had approached Walki Group, in order to acquire two of Walki’s extrusion coatings sites: Pietarsaari in Finland and Wroclaw in Poland. The deal was subject to competition clearance. The commission raised concerns about the impact on the competition environment, and a considerable time was spent on discussing ways to alleviate these.
/INS. Many packaged foods contain mineral oils, which are potentially unsafe for human consumption. Walki has developed Mineral Oil Safe Technology (MOST), an efficient extrusion coating that keeps mineral oil away from our food.
/ INS. The demand for multilayer laminates is increasing and there is an extensive growth potential, particularly in the construction business. Walki is answering to this demand by investing in a new production line at its Valkeakoski plant in Finland.
INS/ Walki's paper-based and waterproof biomass cover protects logging residue stored on the ground, maximising the energy content of this inexpensive and easily accessible source of biofuel. Walki now offers a new six meter wide cover substantially increasing the energy content.
Walki's new green field plant in Wroclaw was inaugurated today. As the markets for both consumer and industrial packaging is growing in Eastern Europe, Poland is the ideal location for Walki to build a platform for future growth.
