Ahlstrom-Munksjö has its roots in Swedish and Finnish know-how about natural fibers. The company as it is today was founded in April 2017 by joining Ahlstrom and Munksjö together.
But before that, each company has been a cornerstone of Finland and Sweden’s economy: Ahlstrom was founded in 1851 by Antti Ahlstrom and is one of Finland’s oldest and most respected companies, working with wood and fibers. Today the family is still involved in the business. Munksjö was created around the same period in 1862 by Janne Lundström and Lars Johan Hierta to work in the paper business and has been one of the most innovative paper companies in Sweden.
Today, Ahlstrom-Munksjö has 6,000 employees and total of 41 production and converting sites in 14 countries.
