Lincoln Paper Indefinitely Idles Pulp and Paper Mill Portions of Facilit
Lincoln, Maine, USA 11 December 2013 -- Given the situation created with the November recovery boiler explosion and the costs associated with this, we have decided to indefinitely idle the Pulp and Paper mill portions of our facility. Our Tissue mill business will continue to operate at full capacity. Consequently, we will be downsizing to accomplish this change in operations. These are difficult decisions because they affect our hard working employees and the surrounding communities. However, they are necessary for the long term survival and success of our business.
