In our opinion, this country, the unionized papermakers, and U.S. printers would be better served by NewPage investing in new plant and equipment and out performing their Asian competitors with higher quality and lower pricing. Right now the facts are that these Asian sheets are of higher quality because they are made using brand new paper machines while the U.S. makers have antiquated machines that cannot compete on either price or quality.
We hope the petition is denied and Cerberus sees the light, becomes a long-term player, puts money into their old mills to update their equipment to 21st Century levels and uses competition, not restriction of supply, to make money. That a win-win instead of a win-lose.
