Four months after Verso merged with BillerudKorsnäs AB, a Swedish pulp and paper company, the new owners haven't announced plans for the Wisconsin Rapids location, and city leaders are starting to plan for the possibility that the mill won't restart.

The mill shut down production in 2020 as Verso pointed to a decline in demand for graphic paper due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
