Ahlstrom to Reduce Crepe Paper Production in Finland
Nov. 14, 2008 - Ahlstrom has issued a proposal to start a cooperation procedure at its Kauttua plant in Finland regarding temporary layoffs of personnel in its crepe paper production.
The potential layoffs are targeted to adapt the production volumes of crepe paper to match the current demand and stock levels, Ahlstrom said.
Negotiations are slated to begin on November 21 and estimated to last for two weeks.
The talks will include all of the production and office personnel—21 people—working on Paper Machine 4.
The potential layoffs will not affect the deliveries of crepe paper to customers, Ahlstrom said.
PM 4 is part of Ahlstrom's Technical Papers business area, which is made up of eight product lines with crepe papers being one of the product lines.
In addition to Kauttua, Ahlstrom produces crepe papers in two other plants in Central Europe.
