"In our Consumer Products business, our strategy is focused on network optimization to match the growing demand for the ultra-quality segments of the tissue category. As a result, we elected to sell our Ladysmith facility, which manufactures recycled paper and does not align with that strategy,” says President/CEO Linda K. Massman.
“On behalf of Clearwater Paper, we sincerely thank the Ladysmith team for their hard work and commitment to providing our customers with high-quality products and services,” adds Massman.
The Ladysmith employees are now employees of Dunn Paper.
"Ladysmith is a critical piece of our strategic growth at Dunn,” says Brent Earnshaw, CEO of Dunn Paper. “The additional capacity at Ladysmith will enable faster growth in the specialty tissue/absorbent market and their recycled fiber source is well suited for a variety of applications within the Dunn portfolio.”
Dunn Paper is a manufacturer of high-performance, advanced paper materials for lightweight technical food packaging and tissue products throughout North America. Dunn currently manufactures products at six locations across the Midwest, East Coast, and Ontario, Canada.
