Verso Transitions Paper Machine to SpecialtySeptember 2008
MEMPHIS, TN—Verso Paper will begin transitioning the No. 1 paper machine at its Bucksport Mill in Maine to manufacture specialty papers beginning September 22. With this move Verso will begin supplying value-added specialty papers to customers, which leverage Verso’s core coating and lightweight paper production techniques. Once fully transitioned, this change will reduce Verso’s coated groundwood production capacity by 84,000 tons per year.
