Kruger Closes PM1 at Brompton Newsprint Mill
Print

Montreal, Quebec, Canada 29 September 2014 -- Kruger Inc. will stop production on the No. 1 paper machine and deinked pulp plant operations at its Brompton newsprint mill for an indefinite period, effective November 14, 2014. The company says the decision is intended to rebalance the order book and improve the mill's competitive position.

Unfavourable market conditions, in particular the continuing drop in demand for newsprint, were cited as the reason for the decision.

The shutdown will affect 98 employees and reduce the mill's annual newsprint production by 100,000 tonnes. The company has said it will make every effort to minimize the closure's impact on its employees.

The Brompton mill is located in Sherbrooke, Que. Kruger Inc. is a major producer of publication papers, tissue, lumber and other wood products, corrugated cartons from recycled fibres, green and renewable energy and wines and spirits.
