In October 2019, Metsä Tissue, part of the Metsä Group, announced that it is curtailing its paper production at Krapkowice mill in Poland by temporarily stopping PM6. It has now been decided to close the paper machine permanently.

The annual production capacity of the PM6 was approximately 20,000 tonnes. Headcount implications resulting from the closure of the paper machine will be negotiated according to local legislation.
