TEXTO - O maior investimento da história da Klabin | bloco de texto

The puma is the feline most widely distributed across the western hemisphere. Similar to the animal that inspired its name, the Puma II Project is characterized by its sheer grandeur, representing the largest investment ever made by Klabin. The industrial complex located in Ortigueira, Paraná will undergo two phases of expansion by 2023, which include the construction of two innovative paper machines. 


The project makes Klabin the world’s first company to produce Eukaliner paper, whose patent it already holds. Along with Eukaliner White, the papers require less energy to make and deliver results up to 20% superior than those of existing products. 

ETAPAS DO PROJETO | bloco de texto


PHASE I - The future arrived first at Klabin 

The first phase of the Puma II Project was completed with the startup of Paper Machine 27 (MP27), which will produce the world's first kraftliner paper made 100% with eucalyptus fiber. Eukaliner® is an innovative product made from renewable sources that delivers superior performance even at lower grammage, offering resistant and sustainable packaging paper with excellent printing quality and that optimizes resources across the production chain. With Machine 27 in operation, we will offer the market 450kta of Eukaliner®, underscoring the Company's integrated, diversified and flexible business model.

PHASE II - Growth cycle 

Our growth cycle continues with the second phase of the Puma II Project, which involves construction of Paper Machine 28 (MP28), a modern and sophisticated paperboard machine that will increase our production and ensure we meet the growing market demand for packaging papers. Scheduled for delivery in 2023, MP28 will have production capacity of 460kta and consolidate Klabin’s position as a global producer of paperboard for liquid foods (milks and juices) and processed products, while continuing to advance its continuous growth and expansion plans.

GERAÇÃO DE EMPREGOS | bloco de texto



In the first phase of construction, over 21K direct and indirect jobs were created. Based on estimates, during the first two years of the Puma II Project, R$198 million was injected into the aggregate earnings of workers in the surrounding municipalities. Besides encouraging partner companies to hire workers from the Campos Gerais region of Paraná state, Klabin also added value to the local labor pool by investing in technical training in the communities of Ortigueira and Telêmaco Borba, which benefitted hundreds of professionals. And another development cycle is just around the corner with the launch of the project’s second phase.

For construction of the Puma II Project, Klabin wants to maintain its practice of prioritizing the hiring of local workers like it did for construction of the Puma Unit, which was inaugurated in 2016. At the time, during the construction phase, 85% of the workers hired by the company were from Paraná state.


In addition to encouraging partner companies to hire through the Workers’ Agency, the company also offers local workers various vocational and training programs so that they can access new job opportunities during both construction of the new industrial unit and later in the production and forestry operations.
