PORT HAWKESBURY, Nova Scotia
September 28, 2012
– We are immensely pleased to announce that the sale of the Port Hawkesbury mill has been completed, and the mill is restarting operations under its new name, Port Hawkesbury Paper.
The completion of the transaction today means that 250 employees will be back to work this weekend. In the past three days more than 150 trucks have arrived to supply the mill. We plan to have paper on the reel early next week.
Today marks a major milestone for the mill, and for the many people, who together with the Government of Nova Scotia, have supported the restart of the mill. We thank them all. We have together embarked on the mission to make Port Hawkesbury Paper the highest quality and most competitive producer of supercalendered paper in North America while at the same time being a great place to work, environmentally responsible and a strong contributor to the Province of Nova Scotia.
