ND Paper, the U.S. subsidiary of Nine Dragons Paper, is facing market challenges that have prompted the company to reassess operations at two of its locations.
The rising cost of fiber, energy costs, and market conditions have led to extended downtime at ND Paper's pulp mill in Old Town, Maine, and reduced market pulp production at its Fairmont, West Virginia mill. ND Paper's spokesperson, Jay Capron, says the company will continually evaluate market conditions for potential restarts. ND Paper operates four mills across the United States, and recently converted one of its machines at its Biron, Wisconsin mill to produce brown packaging grades. The company is also preparing to bring a new 1,400-ton OCC pulping line online at the Biron mill in May 2023.
