Additional Information

Since April 2011, a new company Souche Papers has assumed the activities of the former "Papeterie de la Souche" which was liquidated as a result of a decision from the Commercial Court of Epinal in December 2010. As a result of the closure 168 workers lost their jobs. However 120 former employees rebuilt the operations and created a new company to take over the plant. These 120 employees are the main shareholders of the company.
