Hamburger Hungaria Ltd. as Member of the Austrian Family owned Prinzhorn Group and within part of Hamburger Containerboard Division is a leading brown containerboard paper manufacturer in Europe, producing on its 2 paper machines in Dunaujvaros annually 700 000 tons of advanced recycled containerboard paper to exceed customer expectations. The 80 % of this quantity is exported to Central, Eastern and Southern European market.
The specialties of the company are the light weight AustroLiner and AustroWelle, due to the start-up in 2009 of the high capacity, world class paper machine (PM7) next to its already existing paper machine (PM3) with the investment of about 280 million EUR.
The waste paper based production prevents the Hungarian society of transporting recovered paper to waste disposal sites; on the contrary, the paper mill produces a higher added-value product by recycling, so Hamburger Hungaria can be regarded as the most significant unit of environmental protection in Hungary.
A modern, environmental friendly power plant with investment of 150 million Euros started its operation in 2016 to fully and continuously meet the energy demand of the paper mill and simultaneously to utilize the paper production by-products in form of energy.
The Prinzhorn Group invested about EUR 600 million in Dunaujvaros in 2007-2022 to own an up-to-date, technology leader paper mill. By today, the Dunaujvaros site has become one of the most successful units of the Prinzhorn Group.
