Even as it awaits the final approval of several pieces of funding, ST Paper LLC announced Friday it will purchase Verso Corp.'s idled Duluth mill and convert it to produce tissue, instead of the supercalendered paper the plant has manufactured in the past.

Sharad Tak, founder and principal partner of ST Paper issued a statement that said: "Working together with the Duluth community, we can reopen the mill and create family-supporting jobs."
