LOS ANGELES , July 16, 2012 () – India’s Aditya Birla Group has reorganized the management structure of its pulp and fiber business in a nod to the growing influence of this sector of the company, The Economic Times reported on July 12.

The move by the US$40 billion fiber-to telecom company is aimed at providing a sharp focus to its traditional businesses, which are growing, as well as becoming more global.

The new appointments include two new COOs who are managing operations in different geographic regions as well as another managing the pulp business.

All three will report to KK Maheshwari, who is the head of the pulp and fiber business and also managing director of Aditya Birla’s Grasim Industries Ltd.

Aditya Birla, a major producer of dissolving pulp (DP), recently agreed to purchase the assets of the idled Terrace Bay Pulp northern bleached softwood kraft (NBSK) mill in Ontario, and it plans to convert it to DP. In the interim, starting in October, the Terrace Bay mill will resume production of NBSK.
