Domtar Corporation will sell its Ariva paper distribution business in the United States to privately-held Central National-Gottesman Inc. The business will be integrated into Lindenmeyr Munroe, a division of Central National-Gottesman.
Ariva has approximately 400 employees in the United States. Headquartered in Covington, Kentucky, Ariva operates from 15 locations in the United States across eight states in the Northeast and Midwest regions.
Ariva's Canadian operations are not affected by the transaction. The Canadian operations will be consolidated into Domtar's Pulp and Paper Division as they had been historically, upon closing of the transaction.
Domtar Corporation designs, manufactures, markets and distributes a wide variety of fiber-based products including communication papers, specialty and packaging papers and absorbent hygiene products.
