The Final Word by Steve Roush
Print
Since we last spoke, another papermaker, West Linn, announced it would be ceasing operations.

Brian Konen, Chief Operating Officer for West Linn Paper Company in Oregon, issued the following statement on Monday, 16 Oct 2017:

"We are deeply disappointed to end the mill's 128 year history, the last twenty of which resulted from a major restructuring and restart when our current ownership took control of West Linn Paper Company. The commitment and support that we received from our employees, our lenders and our owners as we sought to adapt to structural changes in our markets has been remarkable. However, several unforeseeable events have led to a significant reduction in available pulp, making continued operations impossible. As a result we will wind up our operations as quickly and efficiently as possible, beginning immediately."

Steve Roush is Vice President, Publisher and Editor and in charge of the International Desk at Paperitalo Publications. He can be reached by email at steve.roush@taii.com.
