Progroup AG: Repair work at PM3 extended

Due to damage in the stock preparation area, the PM3 paper mill in Sandersdorf-Brehna is temporarily shut down this month for maintenance. The repair work is well advanced, but it had to be extended. Thus, the shutdown affects a period of about 10 to 12 days in total. PM3’s production volume will therefore be 20,000 to 25,000 tons lower.
