Appvion to consolidate carbonless paper manufacturing operations

10 November, 23:32
Appvion Inc. plans to consolidate the majority of the carbonless paper coating and rewinding operations currently performed at its plant in Appleton, Wisconsin, to its integrated pulp and paper mill in Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania, and relocate the Appleton Plant’s sheeting operations to an Appvion-operated facility near the mill. Appvion expects the transition will begin in January and be completed in the 3Q 2018, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

Consolidating Appvion’s carbonless paper manufacturing, rewinding, and sheeting to the Roaring Spring area, where Appvion already produces this product, will help position the company for long-term success by increasing the efficiencies of its manufacturing and logistics operations.

The consolidation plan will result in the shutdown of three under-utilized coaters and related rewinding and sheeting equipment at the Appleton Plant and the elimination of approximately 200 hourly and salaried jobs at that facility. Approximately 300 hourly and salaried plant employees will be retained at the Appleton Plant to continue producing the company’s thermal paper products and some carbonless and specialty coated grades. Employment at Roaring Spring Mill and at Appvion’s thermal paper coating plant in West Carrollton, Ohio, will be unaffected by the plan.

Appvion produces thermal, carbonless, security, inkjet, digital specialty, and colored papers.
