To meet the weaker demand, the management has decided to reduce the production during Christmas and New Year holiday. Because of the cold weather we find that the demand has decreased in recent weeks, and that will most certainly last a period into next year.

The management has also decided to shut down the small logline to be able to have full focus at the main logline.

The small logline was built in the early 70´s, and requires major upgrades to proceed in a safe manner, so it was a natural decision to shut down the line, says Kjell Gabrielsson, CEO.

The cutback will not affect any employee since all will be placed in existing production.
