Dec 05, 2012. /Lesprom Network/. Sonae Industria's indirect affiliated company Tableros Tradema will enter into negotiations with employees and Trade Unions regarding the closure of its plant located in Solsona, Spain, as the company said in a press release received by Lesprom Network.
Solsona employs 142 people and has a production capacity of 340,000 cubic metres of particle board per annum. The company plans to concentrate this production in another plant located in Linares, Spain.
This decision was taken given the strong crisis and the consequent drop in demand faced in the construction industry over the last years.
Sonae Indústria is one of the largest wood based panels producers in the world. The product range includes: particleboard; MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard); hardboard; OSB (Oriented Strand Board).
