Smurfit Kappa Group plc

At approximately 19.40 BST yesterday evening a fire broke out in an adjacent premises to the Smurfit Kappa SSK Paper Mill in Birmingham. High winds carried the fire which reached the mill’s recovered fibre yard.

Smurfit Kappa Group plc (LON:SKG) would like to thank both West Midlands Fire Service staff and the SSK team for their swift and professional response in controlling the fire within a few hours and ensuring the safety of all.

The paper mill itself is unaffected and we do not expect any material impact on production.
