All time high production at Norske Skog Skogn
In 2022, the Skogn mill produced more than 500,000 tonnes of newsprint. Measured in meters of newsprint produced per employee, the mill reached a new all-time high production record.
With half a million tonnes of newsprint produced by Norske Skog Skogn’s three paper machines, 2022 was a record year in the mill’s 57-year-old history.

All 375 employees, including apprentices, at Norske Skog Skogn will receive a substantial bonus for their excellent performance.
Last week, everyone at Norske Skog Skogn was invited to celebrate their joint success.
“We’ve been running at full steam for the entire 2022. Our competent and highly valued employees and their strong dedication made this achievable,” says production manager Knut Erik Norøy.
For 2022, Skogn set a production goal of 450,000 tonnes of newsprint.
