SAO PAULO, June 18, 2010 (Press Release) -Beginning on June 22nd and extending up to July 1st, Fibria's Três Lagoas Unit (MS) will temporarily shut down for the purpose of carrying our preventive and corrective maintenance on the production line equipment, as well as implementing new projects. This annual operation is conducted with a view to extending the useful life of the plant, adhering to the strictest standards of safety, conservation and environmental protection.

The shutdown will involve 70 companies, which have been hired to perform more than two thousand service orders at Fibria's installations. The work will bring to Três Lagoas around two thousand temporary professionals, many of them from other countries, which will help to stimulate the local commerce and hotel, service and sectors. According to the General Manager of the Três Lagoas Unit, Renato Ottoni, "the temporary shutdown is a part of our constant striving to improve our productivity indices and the environmental efficiency of the processes and equipment".
