Ahlstrom mulls spunlace production line closure in Chirnside
22
Sep '10
Ahlstrom, a global leader in nonwovens and specialty papers, will start consultations with employees and customers to investigate future options, including a possible closure, for its spunlace composite production line number 23 at the Chirnside plant in the United Kingdom. The consultations affect a maximum of 11 employees.

The production line is currently underutilized and the level of activity is not enough to support the economic viability of the line. It produces nonwovens used in medical and wipes applications as well as for the automotive industry. In the case of closure, Ahlstrom aims to serve its customers from the company's other lines.

The Chirnside plant employs about 225 people and is part of Ahlstrom's Food and Medical Business Area.
