Bowater has added the first product in its new line of freesheet hybrid papers. The BowHybrid FS is a blend of bleached kraft pulp and bleached mechanical pulp, providing high strength, hefty bulk and high opacity at light basis weights.
The company views the addition as a positive move, despite the financial inability to carry out the previously announced conversion at its Thunder Bay, ON mill.
“Although we have decided to suspend indefinitely the previously discussed machine conversion option at Thunder Bay, due to the combination of the strong Canadian dollar and high Ontario energy costs, the Calhoun conversion demonstrates our ability to find and execute favourable investment alternatives,” said president and CEO David J. Paterson.
