Stora Enso will Continue Production Curtailment at Sunila Oy
Helsinki, Finland, 29 May 2009 -- Sunila Oy has been losing money since the beginning of the year because pulp prices have remained low and it has not been possible to reduce wood costs sufficiently. Sunila halted production in response to slack market pulp sales, stoppages at customers' mills, and declines in orders.

Because of production curtailments, Sunila Oy has laid off almost all of its personnel since the beginning of April. The production curtailments and related temporary lay-offs are being extend beyond the summer holiday stoppage until the end of September because the company sees no sign of an improvement in the market situation.
