Paper Industry & Packaging Valuations


The Mitchell & Taylor team are highly experienced in asset valuations for the Pulp, Paper & Packaging Industry sector. As a result, we have a deep understanding of the sectors physical assets and their key drivers of value.

Some of the key asset valuation issues within this sector:


  • Technological obsolescence in older mills including speed and trim widths
  • Appropriate levels of Capex/Opex costs to sustain and maintain assets during their economic remaining lives
  • Low cost overseas paper products are affecting the economic viability of older paper machines
  • The measurement of asset utilisation through operational and economic considerations
  • The sector is highly energy intensive and operators must manage their power costs through a combination of waste heat recovery, renewable and traditional energy sources
  • Availability, age and condition of critical and insurance spares to minimise unplanned downtime
