WEIDMANN MALYN PAPER MILL has a 140-year history, dating back to its foundation in 1871 as a fairly typical European industrial operation, producing paper for “writing and smoking”. The enterprise was based in Malyn – a small regional town near Kyiv. At the beginning of XX century, the factory manufactured about 1500 tonnes of paper per year and its production received several awards at prestigious trade fairs and exhibitions.
Starting from the 30th of the last century the mill started manufacturing the condenser paper – very thin and clean insulation paper for electrical capacitors with thickness from 8 to 20 microns. In the 60th a large-scale reconstruction was done in the company: new premises were built, new more powerful paper machines were installed. This considerably increased volume of production: in the next decade, the company became one of the biggest producers of capacitor paper in Europe.
During the last quarter of XX century, because of the installation of two wire machines and a hot-pressed board machine, the factory started to produce various non-woven materials, hot-pressed board for power transformers, various electrical insulation paper grades, cigarette paper and papers for food packaging.
In 1994 the enterprise was transformed into joint stock company “Malyn Paper Mill”, and in 2000 it became a member of the international group of WICOR (WEIDMANN International Corporation) – the world leader in high-voltage insulation for power transformers.
The factory is certified in accordance with International standards ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 and it is a member of Zhytomyr Chamber of Commerce and Industry, European Business Association and “UkrPapir” association.
To maintain its leadership position the company modernizes production, increases its capacity, a number of processes and operations are being automated to improve product quality.
The company has repeatedly won prestigious competitions and its products are highly rated by consumers.
