Forest Products

Workington’s main forest products customer is Holmen Iggesund.

Workington Mill is an integrated pulp and paperboard mill, making products suited to the demands of modern paperboard packaging. They utilise the Port of Workington to import their raw materials such as Wood Pulp where it is handled from ship and stored for delivery to the factory.

The Port is also used by Holmen Iggesund to handle and store significant quantities of logs by sea and rail for onward delivery to the factory. This supports Holmen Iggesund’s biomass boiler which is powered 100% on bio-energy, and makes the Workington Mill carbon neutral.
