COVER STORY

15 ST Tissue Launches
PM 5 Conversion to
Tissue at Virginia Mill

ST Tissue has advanced its plan of converting PM 5 to a tissue
machine and has launched a $35 million expansion project
that includes associated upgrade/expansion of the FRP as well
as addition of a new hard-wound towel conversion line at the
complex. The project is already well underway, with startup
of the rebuilt PM 5 scheduled for sometime in December,
before the end of this year. The fiber recycling plant at ST
Tissue's Franklin, VA, mill (pictured) is being expanded in
preparation for the startup of PM 5.
