HELSINKI, Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Stora Enso has completed the co-determination negotiations concerning the closure of one standard newsprint paper machine (PM3) and the deinking plant at Stora Enso's Hylte Mill in Sweden. The maximum personnel impact is 140 people.

As a result of the co-determination negotiations, PM3 will be shut down by the end of 2020 and the DIP latest in Q2 2021. Negotiations on organizational restructuring, including the risk analysis, have started.
