End of the line for paper machine
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).
