Papierfabrik Palm in Aalen

Laboratory equipment as part of a large-scale project

The Palm paper mill in Aalen wanted a customised laboratory furnishing solution. The company, located east of Stuttgart, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of newsprint and corrugated base paper made from recovered paper. As part of a large future-oriented new plant construction and infrastructure project, a new paper mill was built at the headquarters at a cost of about half a billion euros. A new paper machine for the production of corrugated base papers, which are used for sustainable packaging, formed the centrepiece of the project. A new laboratory measuring 130 square metres was built in the new corrugated board factory for this purpose. One of the existing laboratories was already equipped with Köttermann equipment. The resilience due to intensive use in the sewage treatment plant sector was the decisive reason for Palm to enquire again.
