VIENNA , March 29, 2012 (press release) – Mayr-Melnhof Packaging today announced that it is to close its packaging plant in Liverpool.

In recent years, the team in Liverpool has worked hard to improve the plant’s competitiveness, in order to keep production at the site. However, the economic situation, latest market developments and the demands of MM-Packaging’s customers have finally led to this difficult decision.

The factory in Liverpool has most recently employed a total of 109 employees.

Customers are not affected by this measure as they are now being supplied by other parts of the European MMP production network.

Mayr-Melnhof Packaging, the packaging division of MM Group, is the European market leader in folding cartons. As of December 31st, 2011 the Mayr-Melnhof Group employed about 8,900 people.
