Madison Paper Mill No Longer Producing Paper

May 25, 2016 UPM announced that the production of paper at Madison Paper Industries ceased on May 21. The mill is located in Madison, Maine (USA).

In mid-March of this year, UPM announced the end of its partnership with Northern SC Paper Corp. and as a result, the partnership's paper business — Madison Paper Industries — would close by the end of May at the latest.

With the closure of the mill, UPM has reduced 195,000 tons of its supercalendered (SC) paper capacity in the U.S.

The Madison mill has about 214 employees.
