Ukrgiprobum developed a feasibility study for the construction of Kyiv Cardboard Factory, including the installation of 2 K-19 cardboard machines, each of which was capable of producing 70 thousand tons of cardboard per year, and additional production of 29 thousand tons per year of printed cardboard boxes.
The technical plan for Kyiv Cardboard Factory is developed as a part of Tripilskiy Industrial Site, and funds are provided for land reclamation.
Land reclamation is fulfilled for the construction of the factory. Construction of the factory is mandated to the State Supply Committee of the USSR. Production volumes are increased up to 200-220 thousand tons of cardboard per year, and the production of tissue is planned. A joint management was created for the construction of the cardboard and paper mills.
The plant “Kievpromstroy” was chosen to be the general contractor for construction, and construction of the plant and residential areas begins. On February 1, the first pile was driven into the foundation at the main building site. In November, construction of the printing production plant began.
The company was renamed into Kyiv Cardboard and Paper Mill. Construction of Kyiv Cardboard and Paper Mill in Obukhiv (40 km from Kiev) was a part of a larger program of the USSR State Supply on the use of raw materials.
