Rottneros to continue groundwood pulp production; cancels 30 job cuts

August 28, 2013 - 18:42

STOCKHOLM, Aug. 29, 2013 (Press Release) -Successful product and process development has resulted in winning products that have been well received by the market and resulted in increased demand. Customers are realising the added value of the new pulp products developed at Rottneros Mill. One particularly successful area has been the development of pulp used for paperboard types based on both recycled and fresh (virgin) fibres.

The Rottneros Group has therefore decided to carry on its continuous production of groundwood pulp at the mill. Plans from the spring of 2012 to close down the groundwood line will consequently not be implemented, which means that notices of termination will no longer be given to approximately 30 employees. This line will also continue to produce pulp for printing paper and special applications.

With the groundwood line and the CTMP line in full production, Rottneros Mill is one of the most comprehensive suppliers of high-yield pulp throughout the world, with customers in Europe, Asia and North America.
