Metsä Fibre, part of Metsä Group, is to initiate negotiations on changes related to its plans to discontinue the sawn timber production in Kyrö. According to the plans, production will end in the summer of 2022. The change negotiations at the Kyrö sawmill concern all the sawmill’s 73 employees.
“The Kyrö sawmill has reached the end of its technical service life, which is why we’ve initiated plans to close down its operations,” says Ismo Nousiainen, CEO of Metsä Fibre.
The annual production capacity of the Kyrö sawmill is approximately 230,000 m3 pine sawn timber, and the annual wood consumption is approximately 450,000 m3.
