Oxenoen, Norway — Norske Skog announced recently in a press release how they plan to implement their planned reduction of 200,000 tonnes of newsprint in Europe in 2008. In Norway, Norske Skog Skogn will be reduced by 89,000 tonnes and Norske Skog Follum will be reduced by 64,000. Elsewhere in Europe, Norske Skog Parenco in Holland and Norske Skog Golbey in France will each reduce production by 24,000 tonnes.
Close cooperation between the mills’ management, employee representatives and corporate management served as a basis for the plan, which focuses on reductions in overtime work and summer temps. Thus, no temporary lay-offs will be necessary at any of the mills.
“This has been a very demanding process,” said CEO Christian Rynning-Tonnesen. “I would like to praise the management and the employee representatives at the affected mills for the constructive and positive participation. Together, we have managed to get a plan for 2008 in place which will be very important in our efforts to increase Norske Skog’s profitability.”
