Ahlstrom's personnel negotiations completed in Karhula

Sep '08
Ahlstrom has concluded the cooperation procedure at its glassfiber plant in Karhula, Finland. As a result of the negotiations, the company will reduce the production of winded roving and change from a two-shift production model to a one shift arrangement.

After this change the department will employ three people instead of the previous 10 employees, and the remaining seven employees will be offered work in other departments at Ahlstrom's Karhula plant. As a result, no lay offs will take place.

The negotiations started on August 25 and concerned the production people at the plant's department producing winded roving. The reason for the negotiations was Ahlstrom's strategic focus on producing roll goods and the fact that winded roving comprises only a small part of Ahlstrom's Glass Nonwovens business.

In line with its strategy, Ahlstrom has during recent years focused on the production of roll goods in its Glass Nonwovens business. The largest product lines of the business area are glassfiber tissue and specialty reinforcements.

Additionally the company produces smaller amounts of specific products, which include winded roving. The product is used e.g. as reinforcement in building industry, and accounts for 2-3 percent of the business area's net sales.

Ahlstrom's plant in Karhula is part of the company's Glass Nonwovens business area, and it employs over 400 people.
