Glatfelter names new VP and GM, provides fire update

By

P.H. Glatfelter Co. has a new vice president and general manager for its Specialty Papers Business Unit effective today, the York-based company said.

Brian Janki joins Glatfelter from Ohio-based Greif Inc. He worked in a variety of progressive leadership assignments for the company for 12 years, according to a news release.

The business unit, which includes the firm's Spring Grove facility in York County, makes products for uses such as multi-part forms, security papers, mailing, food-grade products, digital imaging and book publishing, according to Glatfelter's most recent annual report.

Also this week, Glatfelter said a recent fire at a Canadian airlaid facility making absorbent, nonwoven materials for the feminine hygiene and specialty wipes markets might affect third-quarter results due to factors that include lower shipments.

Because of capacity at another facility in Germany, the firm anticipates a "modest impact" on third-quarter shipments of about 600 to 1,000 metric tons, according to the separate news release.

There were no injuries or environmental impacts from the fire, the release stated.

Shares of Glatfelter are traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol GLT.
