Appleton's West Carrollton Mill returns to full production

Press release from the issuing company

Appleton, Wis. - Appleton's paper mill in West Carrollton, Ohio, has returned to full production following repair work and the installation of temporary boilers to address damage caused by the collapse of some internal structures of a coal silo at the mill.  The incident occurred on July 10 and caused no injuries. Portions of the mill returned to production on July 12 and continued to operate while repairs were underway.

Appleton quickly shifted production of some of the carbonless and thermal paper products produced at the West Carrollton mill to the company's manufacturing facilities in Appleton, Wis., and Roaring Spring, Pa., to minimize the impact of the incident on its customers.

The company will continue to leverage the strength of its network of manufacturing facilities to return order lead times and service performance to normal levels over the next few weeks.
