With the acquisition of the major assets of the US manufacturer Cheney Pulp and Paper, the Group has secured the leading player for the processing of rag pulp and other plant based fibres on the international market.
Cheney has been active in the processing of natural fibres to pulp for over 75 years. The site in the US state of Ohio will also assume a pivotal role in the supply of raw materials for the portfolio companies of the DYNOS Group. Cheney's unique experience in rag manufacturing, their high efficiency and cost leadership as well as their excellent customer contacts will strengthen the DYNOS Group in the long term. Hence, DYNOS secures, in particular, the added value of its successful products from its own resources.
