Features & Benefits

What you can expect from us:



A state-of-the-art fully integrated manufacturing facility combines both pulp processing and paper production on one site, ensuring high uniformity and consistency of all physical characteristics for optimal converting and packer line performance .


Converts beautifully with uniform cuts, consistent creases and excellent emboss heights. In combination with high sheet flatness, this results in better running blanks that enhance packer line productivity.


A classic white appearance is achieved without using optical brightening agents (OBA). This gives cigarette packs a premium look and excellent fade resistance.


Promina’s unique fiber mix, finishing methods and single-ply construction contribute to cigarette packs with excellent formation, stiffness and durability.

Fade Resistance

Colorfast dyes provide excellent fade resistance for color integrity and lasting brand protection.
