Södra initiates process to close down Berg & Berg

Södra is initiating a process to close down Berg & Berg in Kallinge. Trade union negotiations will begin as soon as possible, and will affect all 60 employees. Berg & Berg has been on the market for some time but Södra has been unable to sell the company, and this is the reason for the closure. “This is a regrettable decision to have to give to all of our coworkers at Berg & Berg,” said Jörgen Lindquist, President of the Södra Wood business area.

Sappi Europe to increase its CWF and UWF prices

Due to continued high pulp prices and increasing energy and transportation costs, the longer term economic viability of our paper assets remains at risk.

Sappi is therefore forced to pass on this cost inflation by increasing its CWF and UWF prices in sheets and reels by 6-8% effective on deliveries from January 1st 2019 for all European and Overseas markets. This follows previous announcements made for its LWC and MWC grades.
