Additional Information

The Arjowiggins specialty paper production site, which was liquidated a year and a half ago, will be taken over by Paper Mill Industries. Paper Mill Industrie intends to recruit 240 employees by 2025, with priority given to recruiting from among the 566 employees made redundant during the liquidation in March 2019. The revitalisation of the site is based on the development of several projects: wood activity, textile fibre recycling, sustainable paper production, art and security.
