Laakirchen, 26th August 2020 / Following today’s announcement by the Swedish SCA Group about discussions regarding a possible closure of its paper machines in Ortviken (Sweden) and consequently possible effects on various corporate divisions of the group, the Austrian paper manufacturer Laakirchen Papier AG comments on this issue as follows:
The Heinzel Group, whose subsidiary is the Austrian paper mill Laakirchen Papier AG, has a sales cooperation with the SCA Group in place since several years.
''The possible closure of the paper machines and potential effects on the sales cooperation with SCA in Western European countries such as Germany, France, Belgium or the Netherlands have no influence on the production and sales of SC paper from Laakirchen Papier. We continue to be committed to SC paper production in the future and we assure our customers that they will be delivered with our paper as usual”, says Franz Baldauf, CFO of Laakirchen Papier AG.
