Kruger subsidiary schedules three job fairs to fill 100 positions created by US$350M expansion at its tissue mill in Memphis, Tennessee; project, which will double the mill's manufacturing capacity, is nearing completion

LOS ANGELES , September 10, 2012 () –

KTG USA, a subsidiary of Montreal-based Kruger Inc., has scheduled the final three job fairs to fill positions created by an expansion at its tissue mill in Memphis, Tennessee, reported The Commercial Appeal on Sept. 10.

The fairs, to be held in the Memphis area on Sept. 10 and 11, is a “last chance to apply” for 100 positions that include converting technicians, paper machine technicians and labor pool workers and pay US$13.17 to $17.45 per hour, according to a company release.

The US$350-million expansion is nearly completed and will double the size and manufacturing capacity of the mill, which makes facial and toilet tissue for the White Cloud brand and for private-labels products, The Commercial Appeal reported.

Kruger has won two tax freezes from the Memphis and Shelby County Industrial Development Board. One of the payment-in-lieu-of-taxes (PILOT) runs through 2015. The other PILOT, which is tied to a $40-million expansion to double the mill’s capacity in 2005, runs through 2013.

Kruger bought the mill from Kimberly-Clark Corp. for $35 million in 2002. The operation currently employs about 300 people, reported The Commercial Appeal.
