SCA gives up flexible packaging paper production at the Mannheim mill in order to concentrate on tissue and sanitary paper products.
SCA is planning to cease production of flexible packaging papers and specialty products at the SCA Hygiene Products mill in Mannheim, Germany. According to the company, operations at SCA Flexpack Papers will stop in the first quarter of 2015.
SCA Flexpack Papers, a business unit of SCA Hygiene Products, is producing some 60,000 tpy of white machine glazed (MG) papers and unglazed greaseproof papers on two machines and employs 110 people. Wherever possible, the employees affected would be offered jobs at other SCA sites in Germany, said Roger Schilling, Plant Manager and Technical Managing Director at SCA in Mannheim.
