Press release from the issuing company
MONTREAL, Oct. 7 - Domtar Inc. is pleased to announce today that in order to highlight its participation as one of the manufacturers of the paper used to print J.K. Rowling's latest novel Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, it will donate 500 copies of the book to community and school libraries in localities where it operates pulp and paper mills.
"The latest Harry Potter is a wonderful book. It will no doubt bring hours of pleasure to both children and adults. Domtar is very pleased to have been one of the core suppliers of paper for this fifth novel. As a token of gratitude towards all those who have helped us become a recognized manufacturer of quality publication papers, and in support of our commitment to literacy, we have decided to donate copies of the book printed on our stock. In so doing, we hope that this will enable more children to follow Harry in his new adventure," said George Kobrynsky, Senior Vice-President, Pulp & Paper Sales, Marketing & Customer Relations Group.
Domtar's Ottawa-Hull Mill in Ontario and its Nekoosa Mill in Wisconsin manufactured some of the paper for the first printing of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The paper used for this new novel was custom-made for the publisher's very specific requirements. It is important to note that no trees from endangered forests were used as a source of fiber to make the paper on which the books were printed. Domtar stock was also used to print another J.K. Rowling novel Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
