Sep. 19, 2017 - During the night between September 5 and 6, there was a fire in one of the buildings at BillerudKorsnäs’ production unit in Karlsborg, Sweden. The production was stopped as a consequence of the fire but is now back to full speed.

“Our teams and suppliers have made good efforts to overcome the consequences of the fire and we are glad that we can inform our customers of this quick start-up,” said Per Lindberg, President and CEO of BillerudKorsnäs.

The company estimates the impact from the fire on Q3 results will be approximately SEK 35 million (roughly C$5.4 million).  

The production unit in Karlsborg manufactures sack and kraft paper as well as market pulp for the packaging paper business area and has a production capacity of approximately 300,000 tonnes per year.
