HELSINKI , December 13, 2012 (press release) – The operations at UPM Aureskoski further processing mill in Parkano, Finland will cease this month. UPM has produced interior wood panels at the mill. UPM announced in June 2012 the decision to close down the mill by the end of the year.

UPM has started the “From Job to Job” programme in Aureskoski in order to alleviate the effects caused by staff reductions in relation to the closing of the mill. The programme, which UPM implements in co-operation with the authorities and partner companies, includes active measures that promote employment and re-training.

Aureskoski further processing mill employs 33 people. The closure announced today is part of the decision published on 29 June 2012, including restructuring of UPM’s sawmill and further processing operations and renewal of business strategy in Finland.
