About Mondi Hinton
The Hinton Pulp mill in Alberta, Canada, started production in 1957 and has the capacity to produce around 250,000 tonnes of unbleached kraft pulp (UKP) per annum. In 2023, Mondi acquired the Hinton Pulp mill from West Fraser Timber Co. Ltd and as part of the transaction, Mondi entered a long-term partnership with West Fraser to access local, high-quality fibre from a well-established wood basket.
Mondi intends to invest in the mill to improve productivity and sustainability performance and, subject to pre-engineering and permitting, invest in expanding the facility primarily with a new kraft paper machine. The acquisition of the mill, and investment in the paper machine, will fully integrate operations in the Americas and enable Mondi to secure the long-term supply of high quality, cost competitive kraft paper into its network of 10 paper bags plants in the region, better positioning Mondi to support the growing market demand for industrial and mailer bags.
