Stora Enso plans to make organizational changes in its paper division following the conversion of its Oulu mill in Finland at the end of 2020.

The planned changes could result in a reduction of a maximum of 135 employees in the company’s paper division, primarily in the commercial functions and operations support.

The company says the planned changes will improve competitiveness and ensure efficient customer service after the Oulu Mill conversion for production of kraft liner for packaging.

The new organizational set-up, which will take place in phases, is expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2021.

No decisions regarding the planned changes will be taken, nor will there be any redundancies until the appropriate co-determination negotiations have been concluded.

Stora Enso is a global provider of renewable solutions in packaging, biomaterials, wooden constructions and paper. The company has approximately 26,000 employees in over 30 countries. Sales in 2018 were EUR 10.5 billion.
