Mondi to Close PM in South Africa

Johannesburg, South Africa 14 May 2013 -- Mondi recently announced that its South Africa Division plans to close a newsprint machine at its Merebank mill in South Africa.

Mondi states that  “. . .as a result of the ongoing decline in domestic newsprint demand and reorganisation within the publishing sector, the decision has been taken to close one of the two newsprint machines in Merebank. The newsprint business will continue to operate one newsprint machine with an annual production capacity of 120,000 tonnes per annum.”

Mondi will also close the South Africa Division's woodchip export operations.

The Mondi Merebank Mill produces a range of office paper including the premium South African brand, Mondi Rotatrim. Mondi Shanduka Newsprint (MSN) is also housed in Merebank, and produces newsprint and telephone directory paper, primarily for the South African market.
