Stanger Mill is unique in South Africa in that it uses bagasse as its basic raw material in the manufacture of office paper and tissue wadding. Situated along the north coast of KwaZulu-Natal, the mill is ideally situated to take advantage of the ready supply of bagasse from the neighbouring Gledhow Sugar Company.

The technology of pulp and paper manufacturing is dynamic and continually advancing as there are demands placed upon paper end-users. In order to satisfy the demand for good quality paper made with care for the environment, we continually assess our manufacturing processes and manage product development based on market demands and industry trends. The mill’s paper machine has a production capacity of 80,000 tons, while the tissue machine produces around 30,000 tons per annum. It also produces 60,000 tons of bleached bagasse pulp for its own consumption per annum.
