Boise Paper has been given the green light for a $72 million capital project. The company is looking to expand its production of pressure sensitive paper by upgrading its 250″ PM3 at its mill in Wallula, WA. Once the project is completed, Boise will have increase its pressure sensitive capacity by 200,000 tons.
Preliminary engineering and planning for the project has been underway since 2004. Construction is set to begin in June 2006, and a tentative start-up date has earmarked for the first quarter of 2007.
A recently passed piece of legislation that will reduce the business and occupation tax for the forest products industry by 40% was cited as one of the major reasons the company decided to pursue the project.
