Lecta has announced the temporary shutdown of Line 8 production at its Condat’s mill from the end of April. The decision will be reevaluated in the following months depending on market developments.

The decrease in CWF demand over the last several years resulted in overcapacity in the industry. The worsening of this trend observed in the last months is the main reason for the temporary Line 8 shutdown at the Condat’s mill.

The Condat’s brand product range and service levels during this period are guaranteed due to efficiency improvements and streamlining on Condat’s Line 4 as well as through the contribution of the Group's other CWF paper mills.

Despite the temporary shutdown, meeting the overall demand of Lecta's CWF customers is assured, given the Group's total production capacity of more than 850,000 tons per year.

At the same time, Lecta continues working on a strategic transformation plan that will allow Condat to move forward with greater chances of success, although this project needs further definition over the next few months.

This plan would entail the transformation of production Line 8 from manufacturing two-side CWF to manufacturing specialty papers for labels and flexible packaging, a market in which Lecta has extensive experience given its manufacturing operations in Spain and business operations worldwide.
