Greenwich, Connecticut, USA, 16 December 2008 -- /PRNewswire/ -- White Birch Paper Company announced today that it will take market related downtime at its four paper mills in the first quarter of 2009.

The specific downtime taken at each mill will be determined on the basis of manufacturing and delivery costs at the time. Additional downtime will be taken throughout the year as required by market conditions. White Birch will maintain adequate inventories to ensure that its customers will not experience any service interruptions during the shut-downs.
