Australasian Timber - - NEWS -

Last Fe­bru­ary 2017 Stora Enso an­nounced that it planned to per­ma­nently shut down pa­per ma­chine 8 (PM8) at Kvarnsve­den Mill in Swe­den due to struc­tural weak­en­ing of mag­a­zine pa­per de­mand in Europe. Co-de­ter­mi­na­tion ne­go­ti­a­tions with em­ploy­ees at the mill are still on­go­ing, but PM8 was per­ma­nently shut down in early June. The num­ber of peo­ple af­fected by the re­or­ga­ni­za­tion of the mill and shut­down will be de­ter­mined dur­ing Q3 2017. PM8 had an an­nual ca­pac­ity of 100 000 tonnes of su­per­cal­en­dared un­coated mag­a­zine pa­per (SC).
