The Company’s mills produce over 75% of all domestically produced market pulp, 20% of board, and 10% of paper. The Company's total annual pulp and paper output exceeds 3.4 million tons.
In 2014, the Company completed implementation of its two large-scale investment projects involving construction of new facilities and upgrade of the existing mills in Bratsk (Irkutsk Oblast) and Koryazhma (Arkhangelsk Oblast) with CAPEX of approximately USD 2 bln.
