International Paper considers to discontinue newsprint production at its Kwidzyn mill

02 Dec 2019 − 


Company plans to expand kraft paper business at the mill

International Paper informed its customers that it is considering to potentially discontinue newsprint production at its Kwidzyn mill in Poland. The company explained that due to fast declining demand and significant oversupply in the newsprint market, it intends to focus PM 3 at the plant on more attractive segments. Contractual obligations with newsprint customers would be met should it move forward with this potential decision, the company said.

The step would remove part of the machine's 115.000 tpy output capacity for newsprint from the market which has not been used for producing packaging paper. The PM has also been producing sack kraft paper from primary fiber.
