It has approximately 50,000 employees and a turnover of approximately 100 billion SEK (10 billion euro). Its main products include personal care products (incontinence products, baby diapers and feminine hygiene products), tissue, packaging and publication papers. The company's ten largest markets are Germany, United Kingdom, United States, France, Sweden, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Australia, Mexico and Belgium.

History

SCA was founded by Ivar Kreuger in 1929 as a holding company for ten Swedish forest industry companies. Following Kruger's bankruptcy in 1932, the company came to be controlled by the Handelsbanken bank. Handelsbanken and associated funds and companies continue to control SCA to this day. In 1975 SCA acquired Mölnlycke AB, a leading western European producer of disposable hygiene products, and in 1990 SCA acquired transport packaging company Reedpack. In 1995 the Germany-based paper and packaging company PWA was acquired. In 2001 a division(Wisconsin Tissue) of the U.S. company Georgia-Pacific Tissue was acquired. In 2004 SCA acquired the tissue and hygiene products businesses of CHH (Carter Holt Harvey) from International Paper.

In 2007 SCA announced it was acquiring the European tissue operations of P&G (Procter & Gamble) for EUR 512 million. This was agreed by the European Commission in September 2007. SCA will own Tempo, Bess and Bluemia brands plus 5 plants in Europe and Hong Kong, and own European rights to Bounty and Charmin. SCA will need to divest Softis in Germany and Austria [http://www.sca.com/en/Press/Press-releases/Press-releases/6395/6879/] . The company derives its logo from pagan Germanic valknut symbol.
