Södra to stop its Tofte, Norway, pulp mill beginning week of Dec. 11, will also extend maintenance shut at its Mörrum mill in Blekinge, Sweden, from Nov. 19 to Dec. 7; company cites weakened demand as result of international financial unrest

UPPLANDS VASBY, Sweden , November 21, 2011 (press release) – Södra will stop production at Södra Cell Tofte pulp mill in Norway from the beginning of week 50, 2011. This market-driven downtime is in response to weakened demand for pulp as a consequence of international financial unrest.

Last week Södra decided to stop production at Södra Cell Folla pulp mill in Norway at the same time.

In addition, Södra Cell Mörrum in Blekinge will take an extended maintenance shutdown for the same reason, from 19 November to 7 December inclusive.
