Verso Plans Coated Paper Downtime at Maine Mill
July 25, 2008 - Verso Paper Corp. today said that it will take approximately two weeks of downtime at its Bucksport Mill in Maine beginning on September 8, 2008.
The downtime will result in over 13,000 tons of reduced coated groundwood production, the company said.
"As always, we run our manufacturing operations so that we can achieve a balance between our supply of paper and the demand for paper by our customers," said Verso President and CEO Mike Jackson. "We believe that this downtime will help us keep our supply and demand in balance."
Verso already has taken 19,000 tons of maintenance-related downtime this year.
