Chad Wasilenkoff, CEO of Fortress Paper Ltd. commented, "The commencement of production at the Fortress Specialty Cellulose Mill marks the achievement of an important milestone at Thurso. We are pleased that production has commenced ahead of schedule and this will enable us to take advantage of the current strong NBHK pulp prices."
