Metsä Tissue is curtailing paper production on PM6 at Krapkowice mill in Poland until the end of December 2019. At that time, Metsä Tissue will decide whether PM6 will be restarted. The annual production capacity of PM6 has been approximately 20,000 tonnes.
Metsä Tissue said the curtailment is necessary because of the currently unsatisfactory prices of tissue papers in the market, and the company intends to balance its mills’ production to meet market demand.
The Krapkowice mill has three paper machines, seven converting lines and a de-inking line. The mill has approximately 370 employees.
