PM 15 will have a wire width of 7,250 mm and a design speed of 1,150 m/min. It will be the largest paper or board machine ever installed in Vietnam, at the same time representing the first investment in high-technology paper and board making in the country.

The new mill will be located at a greenfield site 200 km south of Ho Chi Minh City. Once completed, the new mill will serve the fast growing Vietnamese packaging market with high quality linerboard products. In 2005, paper and board consumption totaled 1.3 million tons in Vietnam, and annual consumption per capita was approximately 13 kg.

Lee & Man Paper Manufacturing Co., Ltd. is one of China's largest containerboard producers. The company, founded in 1994 and listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, has three containerboard mills with a combined annual production capacity of 2.2 million metric tons.
