The future of UPM Chapelle in doubt

In September 2019, UPM announced the intention to sell its Chapelle newsprint mill in Grand-Couronne, France. It was communicated at the same time, that a process for the potential closure of the mill would be opened in case no credible offer would be received until mid January 2020.

 

UPM started the sales process in September and has been in continuous and substantial discussions with interested parties. While these discussions are still ongoing, the company has not received binding offers by potential buyers of the mill to date.

 

Consequently, UPM has informed employee representatives of its intention to start the employee consultation processes for the potential closure of the site. These consultations are estimated to be concluded by end of Q2 2020 and will be conducted according to French legislation.

 

UPM will continue the sales process throughout the consultation process,  and remains committed to selling the mill if it receives a suitable offer.   

 

The mill currently employs 236 people with an annual production capacity of 240,000 tonnes of newsprint paper.
