Essity is restructuring its production facility in Santiago, Chile, to strengthen its presence in the country’s consumer tissue and professional hygiene segments.

The tissue giant said the move is aligned with its strategy to “optimise the production footprint to increase cost and capital efficiency and further increase value creation”.

The restructuring measures include the closure of one tissue machine and two converting lines, which amount to approximately SEK 140m in costs.
