The focus is the concentration on the product sector specialty papers, i.e. wet- and alkali-resistant label papers as well as flexible packaging papers.

The new business model requires staffing, i.e. the workforce is reduced to around 180 employees. The employees leaving the company are offered to switch to a transfer company in order to further qualify for the job market.
