Ahlstrom plans to close spunlace composite production line in Chirnside

Nov '10
Ahlstrom, a global leader in nonwovens and specialty papers, has concluded consultations with employees and customers over the future options for its spunlace composite production line number 23 at the Chirnside plant in the United Kingdom.

As a result of the consultations, which were announced on September 21, 2010, Ahlstrom has decided to close the production line by the end of March 2011. The line is currently underutilized and the level of activity is not sufficient to support its economic viability. It produces nonwovens used in medical and wipes applications as well as for the automotive industry. Ahlstrom aims to serve the customers of the line from the company's other lines.

Approximately 10 employees will leave the company on a voluntary basis as part of the closure. Other personnel affected will be offered alternative employment within the group. Ahlstrom will book a non-recurring cost of EUR 1.8 million in the financial results of the current quarter.

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