June 21, 2023 (press release) –

Provided for by legislation, the action aims to ensure the proper functioning and reliability of the Unit's equipment

Paraná, June 21, 2023 –  The largest producer and exporter of packaging paper and sustainable solutions in paper packaging in Brazil, Klabin will hold, between June 28 and July 8, the General Shutdown at the Monte Alegre Unit, in Telêmaco Borba (PR). The action is provided for by Regulatory Norms for maintenance and necessary adjustments, in order to guarantee the perfect operation of all equipment, as well as the safety and integrity of employees and the entire community.

In addition to maintenance, the General Shutdown allows the Unit to undergo eventual improvements, such as technological updates, always with the objective of improving productivity and operational safety, with the adoption of the best practices available in the market.

To ensure that all stages are completed quickly and efficiently, Parada Geral relies on prior planning and the support of extra teams, with a significant part of these hired from nearby cities – which represents income generation for Campos Gerais. In addition, the attraction of workers should boost the region's economy and should be noticed by local residents, with a greater movement of people in hotels and accommodation, transport, restaurants and commerce.

Attentive to the well-being of the entire community during the period, Klabin decided to maintain preventive measures against COVID-19, such as the requirement for proof of vaccination and cleaning of environments. In addition to care related to workers' health, the Company monitors the conditions of transport used by contractors during the period, as well as the accommodation that workers will use, in order to guarantee the safety of partners.

Klabin informs that, during this maintenance period, people residing near the Unit may notice variations in odor and noise. It is important to emphasize that these alterations do not pose risks to people's health or to the environment.

Transparent dialogue with suppliers and the community 

Recently, all suppliers participated in an alignment meeting on how the General Shutdown works, with details on safety, food, health and transportation. To minimize the impact on highway traffic, the entry time for temporary workers will be different from the shifts practiced by the factory, and it was recommended that contractors prioritize transportation by bus. During the period, the Company will also count on the help of the City Hall to ensure a better flow on the roads. In case of doubts or suggestions, the community can contact us by phone 0800 728 0607 or by email faleklabinpr@klabin.com.br.
