UPM to close Docelles mill

Docelles, France. UPM is to permanently close its Docelles paper mill in France by the end of January after failing to find a buyer for the facility.


The mill employs 161 people and the closure – part of the company’s plan to reduce graphic paper capacity in response to declining demands in Europe – will reduce UPM’s fine paper capacity by 160,000 tones.

UPM said it was still open to the sale of the mill’s machinery and property.
