Boise Expands Pressure Sensitive Paper Production
Boise, Idaho, USA, 16 January 2008 -- /PRNewswire/ -- Boise Paper, a business unit of Boise Cascade, LLC, announced today that the company has completed the start-up phase of its USD 80 million capital investment to expand Boise's production of pressure sensitive paper.

"We are now achieving our operating and quality targets for the production of coated label and release products, while continuing to meet targets on existing uncoated free sheet products," said Alexander Toeldte, executive vice president, Paper, Packaging, and Newsprint. "We are excited about the results we are seeing from the technology we invested in and are enthusiastic about the opportunities to expand our market presence."

The project added new capability to the existing 250-inch No. 3 paper machine in Wallula, Washington, with state-of-the-art equipment that increases the company's pressure sensitive capacity by 200,000 tons. The proprietary technology provides Boise with the ability to produce coated one-side (C1S) face stocks and release liners while continuing to produce a range of uncoated products. This flexibility is critical given the value of managing pressure sensitive production growth as supply and demand dictates.

Toeldte said, "Our objective is to be the global leader in the market for pressure sensitive papers, which are driven largely by packaging demand." The increase in capacity and new product development enables Boise to serve the growing global demand, particularly release liners used in label applications.

Boise Paper's Label, Release, and Specialty Papers business is a leading supplier of pressure sensitive release liners, face stocks, and related specialty papers. Visit http://www.boiselabelrelease.com/.
