July 19, 2018 – Verso Corporation's Androscoggin Mill in Jay, Me. is expected to benefit from technological upgrades to its No. 4 paper machine's release liner paper capacity.

The strategic investments, to be made over the next 18 months, will position Verso to meet the growing needs of pressure sensitive laminators around the world.

"The Androscoggin Mill and its No. 4 paper machine have a rich history of manufacturing specialty products," Verso's president of graphic papers, Mike Weinhold, said. "When enhanced with these technology upgrades, the No. 4 paper machine's six-metre width, technical capabilities and fully integrated pulp platform will be particularly well suited to support the growing release liner market. Additionally, these investments advance Verso's strategy to reposition 100 per cent of the Androscoggin Mill's production to serve specialty paper and packaging markets."

The investments will be spread across two project phases which include technology upgrades in pulping and refining systems, stock flow piping and paper winding capabilities. The first project phase is scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2018 with completion of the second project phase expected in 2019.

Verso's release liner and pressure sensitive label paper portfolio includes more than 60 highly engineered paper grades made across four Verso U.S. mills. Verso specialty papers are shipped worldwide and backed by technical and customer service.
