Nordic Paper wants to increase greaseproof paper capacity at its Säffle mill
28 Apr 2021 − 

Nordic Paper has announced plans to discontinue pulp production at the Säffle plant in Sweden and buy external pulp instead.

The company has already initiated consultations with trade unions regarding a restructuring of the production at the plant. The measure would lead to a reduction of 20 positions at the plant, according to information provided by Nordic Paper.

The Säffle pulp line is one of the smallest in size in Europe. Nordic Paper plans to exit pulp production and expand the position of the plant as a world leading producer of greaseproof papers. A discontinuation of the pulp production line would enable an increase of the annual paper production capacity by about 10 per cent.

Pulp production at the mill is planned to discontinue during the fourth quarter of 2021.
