Scott Paper is investing in an expansion project at its KTG LP mill in Memphis, TN. The facility produces tissue for in-home consumer use. Kruger bought the mill in 2002, at a time when it was idle, and created KTG, whose business activities were integrated with those of Scott Paper.
The first of the two investments will cost $10 million U.S., money that will be spent to speed up two machines already in operation at the mill. This undertaking will increase the mill’s production capacity by 10,000 tonnes in the first quarter of 2006. A second investment of $20 million U.S. will see the rebuild of an idle paper machine, a project that when completed will add 37,000 tonnes of capacity in 2007.
Once the expansion projects are finished, KTG will have more than doubled its current production capacity and will have added 100 new jobs to the 275 existing jobs at the Memphis mill.
