Kruger halts Brompton paper mill
By CNW Telbec
Sept. 24, 2014 - Kruger will stop production on the No. 1 Paper Machine and deinked pulp plant operations at its Brompton Newsprint Mill for an indefinite period, effective November 14, 2014. This decision, which is intended to rebalance the order book and improve the mill's competitive position, will affect some 98 employees and reduce its annual newsprint production by 100,000 tonnes.
Unfavourable market conditions, in particular the continuing drop in demand for newsprint, were cited as the reason for the decision.
