Opal Australian Paper Maryvale Mill supply update
Secure, long term, certified fibre supply is key to Opal Australian Paper’s Maryvale Mill operations.
As a supplier to the Maryvale Mill, VicForests has confirmed it has ceased timber harvesting operations in East Gippsland and the Central Highlands while it reviews recent orders from the Supreme Court of Victoria in greater detail.
This is a challenging situation with the potential to create financial and production difficulties for Opal as we continue to explore supply alternatives.
Unfortunately, limited stand downs or a reduction in working arrangements may become necessary and we have been consulting on this issue with our team members. No decisions will be made until all team member feedback has been fully considered.
These are measures that Opal may need to put into place while we work as quickly as we can through the potential implications of court orders delivered less than two weeks ago.
Opal will continue to focus on keeping our team members and key stakeholders informed as further developments occur as a result of this evolving situation.
