“Choosing Eisenhüttenstadt as a location was a strategic decision for Progroup AG directed at the Eastern European markets. The existing infrastructure, synergy effects due to its links with the ArcelorMittal steelworks, the qualifications of the people and close proximity to science and research institutes were particular factors that spoke for Eisenhüttenstadt.”

Jürgen Heindl, CEO of Progroup AG

Eisenhüttenstadt is home of Germany’s largest paper mill for corrugated base paper, with an annual production volume of 650,000 tons. Out of an investment sum of 650 million euros, 425 million was invested in the paper mill and 225 million in the connected heat and power station of EnBW.

Regional companies can provide competitive industry services, ranging from supply of utilities to plant maintenance and repair. New projects are planned, monitored and supported on site in joint project teams. Current examples include the paper mill for corrugated base paper, the EnBW heat and power station, the 5N PV production site for the European solar market and the expansion of the Vulkan Energiewirtschaft Oderbrücke GmbH power station.
