Brainerd Dispatch: Wausau Paper Moves Ahead

Brainerd Dispatch

“The investment is expected to open up markets in the paint, medical and automotive industries, among others, as the mill will produce a wide range of unsaturated tape-backing paper that is used to produce masking tape. The improvement is scheduled for completion at the end of the first quarter of 2011.

The mill will retain its ability to produce premium printing and writing products. Wausau’s capital investment is not expected to add jobs at the Brainerd mill, other than providing construction work in the community, but it will improve the security of existing jobs, a Wausau spokesman said. Wausau’s Brainerd mill employs about 180 people.”
