STOCKHOLM, Sept. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, SCA
decided to discontinue the production of publication paper and to
invest SEK 1,45bn in the production
of chemically pre-treated thermo-mechanical pulp (CTMP) at the
Ortviken industrial site in Sundsvall. The decision has been
preceded by consultations with employee representatives.
The proposed restructuring plan for Ortviken paper mill was
announced on August 26. Following the
conclusion of negotiations with employee representatives regarding
the closure of publication paper production, consultations will now
commence regarding the consequences of this closure for the
employees. Approximately 800 employees are affected, most of whom
are located at the Ortviken paper mill.
"Publication paper is a product with a declining market and we
now entirely leave this product area, this enables us to focus on
products with healthy growth and good prospects for the future,"
says Ulf Larsson, SCA's CEO. "The
plans we are now carrying out will have significant impact and now,
together with representatives of our employees, we will seek the
best possible solutions for those affected."
