Ahlstrom has issued a proposal to start cooperation procedure at its plant in Karhula, Finland. The negotiations starting on Tuesday, September 22, 2009 will concern the whole personnel of the plant. The adjustments are estimated to result in a reduction of approximately 100 positions and the continuation of temporary layoffs at the Karhula plant. The actions are targeted to adapt the production volumes of specialty reinforcements and glassfiber tissue to match the demand.

The cost savings, reorganization of operations and production adjustments are estimated to result in a reduction of approximately 70 blue-collar and approximately 30 white-collar employees. Additionally the company negotiates about temporary layoffs for approximately 80 employees. The company management is also considering outsourcing the plant's warehouse and maintenance functions.

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 260 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.
