SCA will close its tissue production plant in Flagstaff, Arizona, in the US this month.
The company said the closure of the Flagstaff tissue production plant is part of the company’s “Tissue Roadmap” and is aligned with the company’s strategy to optimise the geographic production footprint to drive cost and capital efficiency, and further increase value creation in the Professional Hygiene business area.
The Flagstaff tissue production plant has an annual capacity of 55,000 tons for the Professional Hygiene business.
SCA, with the leading global brand Tork, is the second largest player in the US professional hygiene market.
The US is the Group’s largest market, based on net sales in 2016, and is highly prioritised by SCA.
