Austrian Companies: Mondi


Mondi is an integrated packaging and business paper producer, employing 35,000 people across 35 countries worldwide, with a strong emphasis on the emerging markets of Europe, Russia and South Africa.

Their vision is straightforward – to be a leading business with the highest ethical standards, that delivers exceptional value to their customers, their employees, their communities and their shareholders.



The roots of the global business that is now Mondi were first planted in 1967 in South Africa, when our former owners Anglo American plc built the Merebank Mill. Following more than two decades’ growth and consolidation in South Africa, we came to Europe in the early 1990s to start a long period of expansion through acquisition.

We have bought businesses in countries including Austria, the UK, France, Russia, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Denmark, the Netherlands, Bulgaria and Italy, as well as operations in Mexico.

During this time, many major companies – often market leaders in their home nations – became part of Mondi. These included Austria’s Neusiedler AG and Frantschach AG, Cofinec in Poland, and Russia’s Syktyvkar Mill, which is central to our future expansion plans alongside emerging opportunities in Asia and the Americas.

We became an independent dual-listed business in mid-2007 when we successfully demerged from Anglo American with listings on the London and Johannesburg Stock Exchanges.

From January 2008, in place of the former Mondi Packaging and Mondi Business Paper business units, we now operate as two divisions: Europe & International and South Africa.
