Between the 11th and 21th of May, Klabin will hold its annual general shutdown at the Monte Alegre Plant, which consists of stopping paper production to perform maintenance in order to ensure the proper functioning of equipment, and safety and quality for the manufacturing process.
During these ten days, about 100 contracted companies and 3,000 outsourced workers will be involved in the general shutdown. Among the main activities planned are inspections of boilers, digesters, systems of power generation and distribution and controls of the production process.
The number of third-party workers requires logistics and infrastructure that include transportation, lodgings, meals and other items, which move and boost the economy of Monte Alegre and the region. Added to these, are other benefits such as taxes generated for the municipality and extra movement in hotels, bars, restaurants and stores as well as support services for the workers’ stay in the town.
Klabin, Brazil’s biggest paper manufacturer and exporter, produces corrugated packaging, industrial sacks and timber in logs.
