The Nekoosa Mill Makes More Than Paper

People around the world rely on Domtar products every single day. We make those products at facilities around the world, and each facility is as unique as the people who work there. The second installment in our series of facility profiles features the Nekoosa Mill in Nekoosa, Wisconsin.

The city, the name of which comes from a Native American word meaning "running water," is located on the Wisconsin River. The river is an important driver for the local economy, and it is essential to our mill's productivity. Papermaking in Nekoosa dates back to 1883, when the first sheets of paper rolled off machines at the Nekoosa Paper Company.

With more than 440 employees, the Nekoosa Mill is the city's largest employer, and it has an economic impact of more than $350 million in the region.
