After a fire in the recovered paper storage facility, production at Perlen Papier was interrupted for three days. However, deliveries within Switzerland are only affected to a minor extent.

On the evening of 7 October 2021, a fire occurred in the recovered paper storage facility of Perlen Papier. The fire was extinguished quickly and nobody was injured.

As a consequence, the production of the two paper machines had to be stopped and there was a loss of production. Since Monday 11 October, the machines have been running normally again.

As there are hardly any paper stocks available due to the tight situation on the recovered paper market, Perlen Papier had to cancel booked orders at short notice, the company writes. However, deliveries within Switzerland are only affected to a minor extent.
