Agreement Reached to Close Torraspapel Mill in Sarrià de Ter

7/1/2014 12:00 AM

73 of the 132 employees will be relocated to other Group mills and production will be redistributed mainly between the Zaragoza and Motril sites

After a process of negotiation and dialogue with employee representatives to study the viability or closure of Torraspapel's mill in Sarrià de Ter (Girona, Spain), on June 30th the company and employees reached an agreement that will result in the closure of the plant, relocating 73 of the 132 employees to other Group manufacturing sites in Spain.

Current production at Sarrià de Ter, approximately 67,000 tons of base paper and uncoated specialty papers, will be relocated to other Group mills, primarily to the Zaragoza and Motril plants, resulting in a reduction of coated woodfree paper production capacity at these mills.

The paper industry has been experiencing very difficult conditions, with a permanent drop in demand. In addition to the decline in sales, Sarrià de Ter has been affected by the impact of changes in the legislative framework for the electricity industry in recent years.

The gradual closure of Torraspapel's mill in Sarrià de Ter will take place over the next few months.
