Myllykoski Mill to be Shuttered by UPM

Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

UPM, Helsinki, Finland, this week will cease paper production at its mill in Myllykoski, Kouvola, in the Kymenlaakso region of Finland. The company's "From Job to Job" program at the mill will help reduce the impact of staff reductions related to the closing of the mill. The program, which UPM implements in co-operation with authorities and partner companies, includes active measures that promote employment and re-training.

UPM, the Ministry of Employment and the Economy, and the City of Kouvola are also looking for a new industrial player to occupy the Myllykoski mill.

The Myllykoski mill produces coated and uncoated magazine paper, with a 600,000 metric tpy total production capacity from its three productions lines. The mill, established in 1892, employs 371 people.
