Metsä Tissue to curtail tissue production at Krapkowice

Metsä Tissue is to curtail its tissue production at its Krapkowice mill in Poland by stopping the PM6 until the end of December 2019.

It will then decide by the end of the year whether PM6 will be restarted.

The annual production capacity of the PM6 has been approximately 20,000 tonnes.

The company said the curtailment is necessary “because of the currently unsatisfactory prices of tissue papers in the market”.

It added that it will also aim in future to balance its mills to meet market demand.

Metsä Tissue is part of the Metsä Group which focuses on wood supply and forest services, wood products, pulp, fresh fibre paperboards and tissue and greaseproof papers.
