Ahlstrom concludes personnel negotiations with temporary layoffs in Mikkeli

Feb '09
Ahlstrom has concluded the personnel negotiations started at its Mikkeli plant on January 15, 2009. As a result of the negotiations, the company will temporarily lay off part of its personnel step by step between March and September 2009. The adjustments of the operations are resulting from the weakening demand on the market.

The temporary layoffs at Ahlstrom's Mikkeli plant will be carried out step by step between March 9 and August 30, 2009 so that the plant's capacity and service ability will correspond to the demand levels.

Ahlstrom's plant in Mikkeli is part of the company's Glass & Industrial Nonwovens business area and employs 155 people.

Ahlstrom is a global leader in the development, manufacture and marketing of high performance fiber-based materials. Nonwovens and specialty papers, made by Ahlstrom, are used in a large variety of everyday products, such as filters, wipes, flooring, labels, and tapes. Based upon its unique fiber expertise and innovative approach, the company has a strong market position in several business areas in which it operates. Ahlstrom's 6,500 employees serve customers via sales offices and production facilities in more than 20 countries on six continents.
