Stora Enso has divested its 100% shareholding in its Finnish subsidiary Formeca Oy, a provider of high-quality machines for automated packaging lines, to Amitec Oy, a specialised engineering and machine construction company based in Finland.

Following this transaction, Stora Enso will become a reseller of Formeca machines and retain the ability to support and consult customers on packaging automation solutions. Hence Stora Enso will continue to deliver Formeca packaging machines to its customers in its core markets.

The transaction is a share deal and will have a limited financial impact. After the divestment, a few employees will transfer to Stora Enso to strengthen packaging automation support for its customers, whilst the rest of the Formeca personnel will remain in Formeca’s employ.

Stora Enso is a leading provider of renewable solutions in packaging, biomaterials, wooden constructions and paper on global markets.
