Long-standing partner of the paper industry

For more than 40 years, the partnership with one of the most important paper and cardboard packaging manufacturers in Europe, the Varel GmbH & Co. KG paper and cardboard factory, has been an important part of BUTTING’s identity.

The long-standing, traditional business relationship began as early as 1966 with the delivery and installation of cardboard machine 3. One highlight of our collaboration was the PM 5 project in 2004. As part of the extensive reconstruction project of PM 4, BUTTING was also given the order for delivery and installation of the vessels and pipes, including three pulp preparation lines.
In summer 2011, our BUTTING Schwedt team overcame an especially big challenge in this project. Sometimes BUTTING was on site day and night with up to 200 fitters, in order to complete the complicated pipe construction project in record time. “Only good planning and prefabrication, which improved quality, enabled us to keep to the tight time schedule”, reports Dirk Mitterhofer, Managing Director of BUTTING Schwedt.

The additional final tasks for the multi-product PM 4 system lasted until the end of last year. A total of more than 600 t of stainless steel products were delivered. BUTTING in Schwedt on the Oder turned around 20 000 m of pipes into piping components. The scope of supply also included nine exterior stacking towers with a volume of up to 1 000 m³ as well as 45 internal vessels. In addition, our family company produced and installed head boxes, pipes and reject pulper troughs.
