Domtar Corporation announced leadership transitions for two fluff pulp producing mills, in Plymouth, North Carolina and Ashdown, Arkansas. Both mills are getting new, exceptionally qualified leaders as 40-year pulp and paper industry veteran, Bob Grygotis, prepares to retire as the General Manager at Ashdown on September, 1.
Allan Bohn, manager of Domtar's Plymouth Mill, will move to Ashdown, replacing Gryotis. Everick Spence, who currently works in the Fort Mill headquarters office as director of Continuous Improvement, is being promoted to replace Bohn as Plymouth Mill manager. Both Bohn and Spence will report to Steve Makris, Pulp business vice president, effective September, 1.
President of Domtar’s Pulp & Paper division, Mike Garcia, is charging Allan with continuing Grygotis' success at ramping up fluff pulp production at the Ashdown Mill and getting the product qualified with customers.
According to Garcia, operations at the Plymouth mill will not miss a beat when Bohn heads to Ashdown, since Spence will be replacing Bohn.
Domtar is a leading provider of a wide variety of fiber-based products including communication, specialty and packaging papers, market pulp and absorbent hygiene products.
