Our board can be found in many products all over the world. We dare to make the claim that everybody will have something at home that was made of Eska material.
The two Eska mills were founded by entrepreneurs who saw a future in strawboard production. The mill in Sappemeer was founded in 1879 and the one in Hoogezand in 1897. In 1993 both mills merged into one company.
From straw to recycled paper
The history of the straw board sector was characterised by good times following bad times, depending on the availability of straw. This was reason to start experimenting with recycled paper as a raw material in 1934. In 1970 and 1971 the factories in Hoogezand and Sappemeer moved over completely to using recycled paper as a raw material.
