Ahlstrom concludes negotiations on temporary layoffs

Ahlstrom has concluded the negotiations on temporary layoffs with the personnel of its head office and sales office in Helsinki on March 17, 2009. The negotiations concerned the whole personnel of these units, a total of 76 people.

As a result of the negotiations, the whole personnel of the head office and the Helsinki sales office will be temporarily laid off for one month gradually between April and December 2009.

The members of Ahlstrom's Corporate Executive Team (CET) based in Helsinki have decided to voluntarily give up part of their salary accordingly, although their obligation to work remains unchanged.

Ahlstrom's other CET members working in other countries will also participate in the adjustment program with similar type of voluntary measures.

Ahlstrom started the negotiations as part of the restructuring program announced earlier this year to adjust its operations to the current business environment.

Ahlstrom has already made adjustments at its manufacturing plants and other operations globally, e.g. by means of reducing production, the number of shifts and partially also the number of personnel.

Ahlstrom Corporation employs approximately 6,400 people worldwide.
