NewPage Taking Mill Down Time
MIAMISBURG, OH—NewPage Corp. will be taking approximately 25,000 tons of coated paper market-related downtime in June and July throughout its mill system. Several machines will be involved, and each will take advantage of specific times to complete planned maintenance and capital work.
Meanwhile, two paper machines at the Niagara, WI, facility that were slated to run until this fall will now be permanently closed on July 12. This reduces production by an additional 50,000 tons. The Niagara machines produce lightweight coated groundwood papers used in magazines and catalogs.
