Nov '09
Ahlstrom has completed the personnel negotiations started on September 22, 2009 at its plant in Karhula, Finland. As a result of the reorganization of operations and production adjustments, 59 blue-collar and 17 white-collar employees will be laid off. Additionally, temporary layoffs will continue in order to adapt the production volumes to the demand.

The reductions will be implemented as of November 2009.

Ahlstrom's plant in Karhula, Finland, is part of the company's Glass & Industrial Nonwovens business area. The plant currently employs approximately 350 employees, of which 250 are blue-collar and 100 are white-collar employees.

Ahlstrom has adjustment actions under way globally. These actions are targeted to adapt production volumes to match the demand and review the company's cost structure.
