Boise Paper's #3 PM Start-up on Track at Wallula
Jan. 16, 2008 - Boise Paper said that it has completed the start-up phase of its $80 million capital investment to expand Boise's production of pressure sensitive paper on the #3 paper machine at the company's mill in Wallula, Washington.
"We are now achieving our operating and quality targets for the production of coated label and release products while continuing to meet targets on existing uncoated free sheet products," said Alexander Toeldte, executive vice president, Paper, Packaging & Newsprint.
The project added new capability to the existing 250" #3 paper machine, with state-of-the-art equipment that increases the company's pressure sensitive capacity by 200,000 tons. The proprietary technology provides Boise with the ability to produce coated one-side (C1S) face stocks and release liners while continuing to produce a range of uncoated products. This flexibility is critical given the value of managing pressure sensitive production growth as supply and demand dictates.
