Metso, Finland, reported this past week that it has concluded employee negotiations regarding the Fiber business line's (FBL) units in Sundsvall, Karlstad, and Hagfors, Sweden. As a result of the negotiation process initiated this past September 30, the following reductions in personnel will be made: Sundsvall 150; Karlstad 64; and Hagfors/Solna 25. The reductions will commence immediately, according to legal terms of notice. Originally the reduction notice applied to 168 persons in Sundsvall, 94 in Karlstad, and 26 in Hagfors. The company explains that these reductions are part of a process to streamline FBL's operations and cost structure, to improve its competitiveness in a changing business environment. Metso's FBL units in Sundsvall, Karlstad, and Hagfors supply chemical and mechanical pulp industry customers with machinery and equipment as well as aftermarket and expert services. Currently, some 900 people are employed in FBL's operations in Sweden.
