“The program is aimed at improving our cost competitiveness in a market that is continuing to experience major structural changes,” says Pasi Laine, President of Metso’s Pulp, Paper and Power business. “We are also aiming to improve our profitability with the help of the program.”

Permanent structural changes in Metso’s Pulp, Paper and Power business’ operating environment have impacted its operations and undermined its competitiveness and profitability. The underlying reasons for the situation lie in the continuing downturn in demand for paper machinery and the growing trend towards cheaper technology solutions.

“New communications technologies are continuing to weaken the consumption of printing and writing paper grades and have been reflected in a slow-down in the market for new paper machines. A lighter cost structure and greater flexibility will be essential to competing more effectively as we move forward,” Pasi Laine says.

“In the power generating sector, we are also experiencing a slower investment cycle in Europe and a significant decrease in demand in North America due to low energy prices resulting from the increased use of shale gas. We must take action to reduce our overall costs if we are to be able to reach our targeted profitability level on new orders,” he adds.

Planning of the program will now begin in all of Metso Pulp, Paper and Power's organisations, at all locations. As planning continues and becomes more concrete, information will be made available to employees and stakeholders in due course.
