Our History

In 1907, the formation of the paper mill Hyltebruks AB began and two years later the mill was ready to be put into operation. Around the paper mill in Småland, the community Hyltebruk grew as the mill created job opportunities.

During the first years, Hylte Bruk mainly produced newsprint and cardboard. The factory was gradually developed and modernized over the years, and in the 1920s it began to produce high-quality paper for letterpress and art printing. During the Second World War, Hylte Bruk also produced some special paper for military purposes.

Large investments were made during the 1970s and 1980s and several new paper machines were started. In the 1990s, Hylte Bruk underwent extensive modernization and automation, which led to increased productivity and efficiency that made it the world's largest newsprint mill.

During the 2010s, the demand for paper decreased and they chose to reduce capacity by shutting down two paper machines.

In 2023, Sweden Timber bought Hylte Mill from Stora Enso. Today we have one paper machine in operation and have approximately 270 employees. This makes Hylte Paper one of the largest private employers in Hylte municipality. With its capacity of 245,000 tons, it remains one of the world's leading newsprint mills and will continue to do so going forward!

The manufacturing process

In Hylte Bruk, paper is produced from TMP pulp. The pulp is made from sawmill chips and pulpwood that is ground into chips.

The chips are processed in a refiner to produce TMP pulp.

The pulp is then processed by dewatering, pressing and drying to become paper. The finished paper is packaged on rolls that are distributed for use in printing at our customers.
