About ESKA
ESKA (annual turnover > €150 million, > 400 employees) started out in 1879 as a traditional production company. Over the years ESKA has developed into a strongly market-driven company with the focus increasingly shifting to luxury packaging. More than 275.000 tons of cardboard are produced from recycled paper in the factories in Hoogezand and Sappemeer. In addition, there are sales offices and distribution centers in Virginia (USA), Milan, and Barcelona. The cardboard is exported to more than eighty countries and is used, among other things, for hard cover books (including the Harry Potter books), binders, puzzles, board games, and luxury packaging (including Gucci and Dalmore). Eska is the global market leader in solid board. Since July 1, 2021, ESKA has been part of RDM group. RDM Group is the leading producer of recycled carboard and the largest producer in Italy, France, and the Iberian Peninsula.

Sustainability and challenge:
For ESKA sustainability is key. Rejects arising from the recycled paper processing are converted from waste into into steam. The steam is used in the production process for drying and pressing the paper and cardboard. In this way less fossil fuel is required, and the rejects do not have to be hauled out. This brings sustainability to an even higher level. sustainable process of production
