As part of the Specialty Papers Europe Conference held in Cologne from April 23 to 25 (www.specialtypaperconference.com/europe), over 50 conference attendees took the chance for the second time to visit the production of Zanders in Bergisch Gladbach. As the conference takes place in Cologne, like last year, the factory tour was carried out again due to the great demand.

During the tour, of course, the cast-coating machines with the chrome cylinders, on which the high-gloss Chromolux is made, were presented: since 1958, the premium paper and board has been produced in the Gohrsmühle mill, thus the Chromolux brand celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. In addition, the current challenges for the paper industry were discussed as part of the tour and how the host company faces them. Zanders presented a new product as well as a portfolio expansion within the past few months to the visitors: Zanjet, a two-side coated paper for commercial high-speed inkjet printing, was launched at the turn of the year; In addition, the SBS range Zanpack has been extended by heavy weights from 450 to 560 gsm.
