July 24, 2023 - In March 2023, Ahlstrom launched a consultation process with employee representatives at its Stenay plant in France about the possibility to divest the plant, and if a buyer cannot be found considering closure.
After a long process to identify potential buyers, Ahlstrom has received a binding offer from Accursia Capital to acquire the Stenay plant. The potential acquisition is subject to consultation with employee representatives.
Since the beginning of the consultation period, finding a buyer has been Ahlstrom’s priority. The group has been working actively with all the local economic and political stakeholders in the area to support the process of finding a buyer.
With a strong commitment to achieving a positive outcome for all parties involved, Ahlstrom would be dedicated to making every effort during the transition to ensure the plant successfully enters its new chapter.
