Klabin delivers first stretch of the third lane on highway PR-160, in Telêmaco Borba

Road improvements will increase local traffic flow and road safety

Paraná, July 13, 2017 – This Friday (14) will mark the delivery of the third lane on highway PR-160, in the stretch connecting Gate 3 of the Monte Alegre Unit to Gate 2. With this, Klabin concludes the first phase of road improvements in Telêmaco Borba, and delivers another benefit to the population living and circulating around the area daily, improving traffic flow and safety.


New road signage on the stretch


With the implementation of the third lane, drivers should be mindful of the new local road signage: from now on, stopping or parking on the right lane is prohibited and considered a very severe traffic violation. The stretch is for vehicles in transit only. Drivers wishing to stop or park should drive until the old Cotrasa station or use the Harmonia round-a-bout to return and access the yard of the Shell station, on the other side of the road.


Klabin stresses the importance of collaboration by drivers in complying with the new rules, which aim to ensure the safety of the population and prevent accidents. In addition to the new local signage, the company will install informational material throughout the highway to guide on the prohibition to park on the third lane and help raise awareness among drivers.

Temporary closing of the footbridge over the Tibagi River

For the safety of pedestrians, the footbridge over the Tibagi River is being closed as of Friday (14) until the end of the road widening and bridge reinforcement works, as the bridge is receiving a pullout lane on both ways and a new pedestrian crossing. We remind that the inconveniences are temporary and will bring important benefits to people and road safety in the region.

The next stage of construction will begin over the next few days and includes construction of a third lane between the Tibagi River bridge and the Telêmaco Borba overpass, aiming to increase the speed, convenience and flow of the region’s traffic.

The works are part of the agreement between Klabin and the Paraná state government, which determines these be deducted from a portion of the VAT (ICMS tax) payable by the company.

Klabin partners with Imbaú to achieve job creation target

The target of creating 128 positions in 2017 will be doubled with the opportunities offered by the company

Paraná, July 13, 2017 – With the help of Klabin, the ImbaúWorkers’ Agency was able to achieve, in six months, its target job creation for the whole year. Estimates indicate that, by the end of 2017, the target of creating 128 positions will be doubled. Around 85% of the new positions will be offered by Klabin, substantially in the Forestry area.

The data were presented during a breakfast meeting at the Imbaú Workers’ Agency in the final days of June. The event, also attended by Mayor Lauir de Oliveira and businessmen from the region, introduced the Action Plan to Create Jobs and Income, an initiative supported by Klabin since last year. “Working to foster local development is part of Klabin’s Sustainability Policy and creating jobs is a direct part of it,” said Klabin’s expert in Community Relations, Sabrina Bicca.

The study shows the profile of Imbaú workers and how they could, through training, meet the needs of companies in the city.

Profile

The study presented by the Imbaú Workers’ Agency outlined the profile that reflects the city’s workforce. Of the men, most are aged 20 to 45 (80%) and has not finished Basic Education. As for women, most are aged 20 to 45 (90%) and have completed Secondary Education. The city’s Economically Active Population (EAP) is composed of approximately 5,000 people, 2,000 of whom are currently employed.

“The main difficulty in employing them is lack of sufficient training. That’s why we gathered representatives from companies in the region to ask them what kind of professionals they needed, so we could find development alternatives,” explained the manager of the Imbaú Workers’ Agency and Development Agency, Cleber Antunes de Carvalho. According to him, through directed training, companies in the region will be able to absorb the labor offered by the city.

Based on the result of the survey that addresses the professional needs of companies in the region, partnerships can be established with institutions specializing in professional training such as Senai, Senar and others. Thus, soon, the Workers’ Agency will be able to offer more training options.  “Today, workers that comes to the Agency can take online training programs, write their résumé and keep their records updated in our databank,” said Carvalho. “Every time a company opens a position, such as Klabin, for instance, we refer the professionals registered with us to the selection process,” complemented the manager of the Imbaú Workers’ Agency and Development Agency.

Service

The Imbaú Workers’ Agency is located at Avenida Ivo Jangada, 267, Centro – telephone (42)3278-1611.

Klabin donates corrugated board cribs to social action in Camaragibe

The initiative aims to distribute cribs and layettes to homeless mothers and babies

Pernambuco, July 7, 2017 – Klabin donated 100 cribs made of corrugated board to the Escola Internacional de Aldeia (Pernambuco), which is implementing a social project in partnership with the Amigos da Rua Institute (IAR) in the city of Camaragibe in Pernambuco. The initiative aims to distribute cribs and layettes to homeless mothers and babies.


Portable, easy to assemble and with an aesthetic appeal that is reminiscent of the children’s universe, the corrugated board cribs were designed by the packaging engineering area at Klabin’s Goiana Unit exclusively for this initiative.  Suitable for babies aged up to three months or weighing up to six kilos, the cribs must not come in contact with water and intense heat sources in order to retain their structural characteristics.


Klabin’s support to the project will help newborns from 100 families, besides underscoring the company's commitment to causes that benefit the communities in the regions where the company operates.Klabin has been operating in the city of Goiana in Pernambuco since 1973 through its industrial unit, which produces recycled papers, corrugated board packaging and industrial bags, and employs over 1,100 people.
