Tissue paper production on the TM 6 in Krapkowice will be temporarily stopped until the end of the year. Metsä Tissue will then decide whether the machine will resume operations again or not.

Tissue paper and products company Metsä Tissue is reducing output at its Krapkowice mill in Poland in response to the current market situation. The company said production on the mill's TM 6 was suspended until the end of December. Metsä Tissue would "decide by the end of the year whether the TM 6 will be restarted," it said.

Metsä Tissue justifies its decision with low paper prices and high supply. TM 6 has a production capacity of 20,000 tpy.
