Sappi cuts production through shift change at Maastricht CWF paper mill in the Netherlands

BRUSSELS , Sept. 18, 2013 (RISI) - 

Sappi has temporarily swtiched from a five- to a four-shift system at its Maastricht mill in the south of the Netherlands. The move was made on September 1, and as a result 40 temporary positions have been cut.

The Maastricht mill has a capacity of 280,000 tonnes/yr of coated woodfree (CWF) paper on one machine. The shift change is due to decreasing demand for paper, a company spokesperson said, and it will reduce the mill's production by about 60,000 tonnes/yr.
