ROTTNEROS MILL CUTS DOWN TO 5 SHIFTS
“Naturally it is very unfortunate that we are being forced to remove a shift and that a number of our employees are affected. I can only state, however, that like the rest of the pulp industry we have to adapt to a slowing market,” says Olle Dahlin, Managing Director of Rottneros Bruk AB.
Rottneros Mill employs around 135 people in total and produces mechanical pulp. The Group also manufactures pulp fibre-based food packaging at the mill.
