Resolute Forest Products Inc. announced completion of commissioning of the first tissue converting line at its state-of-the-art tissue facility currently under construction in Calhoun, Tennessee. The remaining two lines will be commissioned by year-end.
"We are on schedule with the $270 million project, our largest investment since 2010," stated Richard Garneau, president and CEO. "The first production of bath tissue and towel came off the converting line on August 17, representing an important milestone. We are confident that the new tissue machine will be operational as planned, in the 1Q next year."
Resolute's new tissue machine and converting operations are being built at its Calhoun pulp and paper mill, which will be one of the most competitive and efficient tissue operations in North America. At full capacity, the facility will produce approximately 66,000 short tons per year of at-home, premium bath tissue and paper towel, focused on the growing private-label market.
Construction of the Advantage-NTT machine, the latest innovation in tissue manufacturing, is underway.
