Thai Kraft Paper Industry Company Ltd.'s Wang Sala mill was founded in 1989.

In 1996, the company built a new cogeneration power plant unit for the mill. The company's turnkey contract was for a 149-MWt coal-fired Ahlstrom Pyroflow circulating fluidized bed boiler and a Siemens 34-MWe steam turbine (turbine #14).[1] The mill already appeared to have a 26.2 MW unit[2] (turbine #5), and potentially a 21.7 MW unit (turbine #6).[3]

In 2018, SCG Packaging Public Company Limited's annual report noted that Siam Kraft Industry's Wangsala Plant was awarded a "Coal Management” award organized by the Department of Mineral Fuels, Ministry of Energy.[4] SCG has also reportedly been taking measures to reduce its coal use.[5] The Company’s main energy costs include coal and biomass used for coal-fired power plants that transmit electricity and steam for the Company’s production processes.[6]
