Aug '09
Ahlstrom has concluded the personnel negotiations started on June 1 at its plant in Karhula, Finland. As a result of the negotiations, the company has decided on temporary layoffs at the Karhula plant. The temporary layoffs are targeted to adapt the production volumes of specialty reinforcements and glassfiber tissue to match the demand.

The temporary layoffs at the Karhula plant will be carried out during the latter part of the year. They concern roughly 260 employees. Approximately 200 of them are blue-collar employees and approximately 60 white-collar employees. The duration of the layoffs is estimated to be 90 days, at the most.

These adjustments do not affect the delivery and service level of the plant.

Ahlstrom's plant in Karhula, Finland, is part of the company's Glass & Industrial Nonwovens business area. The plant employs approximately 360 employees, of which roughly 260 are blue-collar and roughly 100 are white-collar employees.
