(UPM, Helsinki, 9 December 2011 at 9.00 EET) – The paper production of the UPM Myllykoski mill will cease next week. The “From Job to Job” programme continues in order to alleviate the effects caused by staff reductions in relation to the closing of the mill. The programme, which UPM implements in co-operation with the authorities and partner companies, includes active measures that promote employment and re-training.
UPM, the Ministry of Employment and the Economy and the City of Kouvola are also looking for a new industrial player to occupy the Myllykoski mill.
