Paper360 - July/August 2017 - 31

23. LARS IDERMARK
SÖDRA
Last year was one of transition for Södra as it
embarked upon major investment and restructuring to set itself up for demands of the future. The
company completely restructured its wood raw
material operations as well as invested extensively
in its Värö and Mörrum mills, which is part of its 2020 Group strategy.
Idermark recently stated, "Södra's efforts to create a stronger company in
a more global and competitive market are continuing. The investments
of recent years are among the largest in the company's history, and we
are strengthening our customer offering and securing markets for our
members' forest products."

Maastrict mill in the Netherlands. Sappi Europe CEO Berry Wiersum
recently picked up the RISI European CEO of the Year Award for leading
the successful transformation of the division into a leading specialty
papers producer in the region.

24. JOE KRUGER
KRUGER
Kruger Packaging started up its 400,000 tpy lightweight recycled
linerboard machine on May 7, right on schedule. It is a complete rebuild
of former No. 10 newsprint machine. The head of the family-owned,
Montreal-based company has never been afraid to invest. The US$183
million project uses the latest containerboard manufacturing technology,
and the market has shown confidence in the product as the machine was
oversold for May. Kruger Packaging is a new company that combines all
Kruger's containerboard and packaging operations. The conversion was
designed to produce new opportunities at Trois-Rivières, QC, and secure
270 jobs at the large mill complex, which had been facing declining sales
for newsprint and printing paper grades. Kruger is "happy about the timing" of the startup, coming at a time when North American box demand
is strong; plus, no new capacity expansion projects of 250,000 tpy or
more have been definitely announced in North America for 2017-2019.

28. MICHAEL DOSS
GRAPHIC PACKAGING
Continuing to show strong leadership since he
took over the CEO role in 2016, Doss joined with
DHL Supply Chain CEO Scott Sureddin to announce
the companies will make a combined US$274 million capital investment in Northeast Louisiana and
develop a 1.27 million-square-foot folding carton plant and logistics
center in Monroe. In West Monroe, Graphic Packaging will continue
to reinvest in its paper manufacturing location, including upgrades to
the mill's paper machines. The company's West Monroe operations
will supply paperboard for the new packaging and logistics center in
Monroe. In addition to West Monroe mill investments totaling US$120
million over the next several years, Graphic Packaging will invest US$70
million in new state-of-the-art folding carton plant equipment for the
converting plant in Monroe. Doss was also honored as the ASPI 2017
Customer Executive of the Year, the highest honor that ASPI can bestow
on an individual.

25. LUIGI LAZZARESCHI
SOFIDEL
With its 50-year anniversary this year, the
fast-growing Italian-based tissue manufacturer
has recently released figures for 2016 that show
an increased turnover and profits in line with its
ambitious forecasts. The company has been on a
major expansion drive over recent years that now sees it as a major tissue producer with subsidiaries in 13 countries including Italy, Spain,
the UK, France, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Poland, Hungary, Greece,
Romania, Turkey, and the US. CEO Lazzareschi recently picked up the
Capo d'Orlando Award in the Science and Industry category for "having
combined the injection of state-of-the-art production technologies with
industrial management of rare environmental sensitivity."
26. STEVE BINNIE
SAPPI
As CEO, Binnie continues to lead Sappi in the right direction. His
strategic focus on dissolving pulp and specialty papers is paying dividends as graphic paper demand continues to decline. Earlier this year
the company announced that it would boost specialty packaging capacity in Europe with projects at the group's Alfeld mill in Germany and

27. MIKE GRIMM
AMERICAN EAGLE PAPER
This is a leader with a small mill in a declining uncoated freesheet
white papers business who strongly competes and has bettered his
business with several capital additions in the last few years. The firm
just completed a major boiler job that reduced energy cost, and has
added sheeting and warehouse space. It also has moved to somewhat
diversify its product mix.

29. JOHN O'DONNELL
NEENAH PAPER
This former Georgia-Pacific leader has steadily grown Neenah Paper
through acquisitions and creative energy. The company adds grades in
a declining white papers market and pivots to grow nicely in technical
specialty papers and luxury packaging. Neenah Paper just started up a
transportation filtration machine in Wisconsin, by converting a white
papers machine, in an end segment where the firm has a leadership
position globally.
30. MATÍAS DOMEYKO
ARAUCO
The world's number two producer of market pulp has just received
notice that it can proceed with a new 1.5-million metric tpy bleached
eucalyptus kraft pulp line at its Arauco mill in Horcones, Chile. The
MAPA project, as it is known, will cost US$300 million and include a
new effluent treatment plant. The company has also broken ground
on a new particleboard mill in Michigan. In 2017, the Chilean-based
company celebrates 40 years of business with China, where it is one of
the leading pulp suppliers.
