According to trade unions and government representatives, Arjowiggins has discontinued production at three plants in France following the initiation of insolvency proceedings. As reported by various regional media and confirmed by Agnès Pannier-Runacher, Secretary of State at the French Ministry of Economy and Finance, during a question and answer session in the French Parliament, three Arjowiggins companies in France have closed down due to insolvency. These are the Greenfield DIP plant in Château-Thierry in the department of Aisne, the Le Bourray plant in Saint-Mars-la Brière and the Bessé-sur-Braye plant, both in the department of Sarthe.

 The State Secretary explained that the current priority is to pay the salaries of employees and maintain employment, which is a prerequisite for seeking investors for each individual plant. This is currently happening and there are already expressions of interest, she said. Offers are expected by the beginning of February.
