Ahlstrom-Munksjo To Idle Paper Machine at Wisconsin Plant

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): In an announcement to its employees, Ahlstrom-Munksjo said that it has decided to temporarily idle #8 paper machine at its Rhinelander, Wisconsin Plant in the U.S in December this year. Also, the #20 Supercalender and #21 Rewinder machines will be idled in July next year.

The plant employs nearly 500 people. The number of employees likely to be affected by the decision is yet to be determined, which will be calculated based on retirements and other potential job assignments. It must be noted that the No.8 paper machine has an annual capacity of 14,000 tons.
