Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Myllykoski, Finland, reports that it will restart its LWC PM 10 at Plattling, Germany, at the end of this month, "due to technology and product reasons." At the same time, the company says it will continue to strictly manage its LWC capacity and take necessary curtailments at other mills when necessary. MD Plattling is Myllykoski's production and development site for wood-containing coated rotogravure papers, an area in which it is one of the leading producers in Europe. MD Plattling's annual output of these branded papers is approximately 350,000 metric tons. They are used to print high quality magazines, journals, supplements, and mail-order catalogues. Myllykoski is one of the largest publication paper producers in the world. It operates seven paper mills with a total annual capacity of close to 3 million metric tons, including the alliance partner Rhein Papier GmbH. The company employs 2,700 people.
