Glatfelter plans to reduce cost of speciality papers business unit
Glatfelter will shutdown the paper machine 24 at Chillicothe facility in Ohio, USA, by September 30. In addition, the company will also reduce 70 salaried employees across the business unit.
â€śOur continuous improvement initiatives in recent years have improved paper machine productivity and efficiencies across Specialty Papersâ€™ asset base. These improvements, combined with the market weakness, have eliminated the need for the capacity from the PM24 machine,â€ť said Tim Hess, Senior Vice President and President, Specialty Papers Business Unit.
The shutdown of PM24 will reduce the production capacity of the specialty papers business unit by 80,000 tons. The existing production is being planned to be absorbed by the remaining seven paper machines in the business unit.

Era of weak euro ended – HS goes over why value of euro has quickly gone up 10 percent and what it means for Finland
Helsingin Sanomat writes that the value of the euro has recently gone up against the US dollar. There are many reasons for why the euro is stronger than a while ago: the EU has managed to tackle anti-EU populism for now and the political uncertainty has found a new home across the Atlantic. A stronger euro hinders the recovery of the Finnish economy as the majority of Finnish exports go outside the eurozone.
