Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, 10 May 2010 – Fortress Paper Ltd. announces that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Fortress Specialty Cellulose Inc. has entered into a pulp purchase and sale agreement with International Forest Products Corp. (IFP) of Foxborough, Massachusetts, USA. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, IFP will be the exclusive distributor for the sale of northern bleached hardwood kraft (NBHK) pulp produced at the Thurso mill for the duration of such production.
