ND Paper Completes Acquisition of Old Town, Maine Pulp Mill

ND Paper, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nine Dragons Paper (Holdings) Limited, on Friday, Oct. 19, completed its acquisition of the Old Town kraft pulp mill from OTM Holdings, LLC, a subsidiary of CVG, Inc. Under the terms of the asset purchase agreement, ND Paper acquired the bleached kraft pulp mill, plus approximately 100 acres of real property, for an undisclosed sum, payable in cash. Prior to its idling in the fourth quarter of 2015, the Old Town Mill manufactured and distributed approximately 155,000 air dried metric tonnes (admt) annually of bleached hardwood kraft pulp. After a series of phased capital investments, ND Paper expects the Mill will restart in the first quarter of 2019 and ultimately produce 275,000 admt annually of unbleached kraft pulp.

ACMA Supports President Trump’s Plan to Withdraw from International Postal Rate System

The American Catalog Mailers Association (ACMA) and the catalog marketers and other remote merchants it represents praise the White House’s intention to withdraw from a longstanding adjunct of the United Nations, called the Universal Postal Union (UPU), which governs global postal rates. As currently structured, the UPU enables lightweight packages (4.4 lbs. or less) coming from foreign nations, notably China, to be shipped into and across the U.S. at rates cheaper ($1.50) than the USPS charges domestically. “For a long time, this has created unfair competition and nobody has done anything about it,” said ACMA President & Executive Director Hamilton Davison. “Finally, the Administration has taken bold leadership on this issue and we applaud their actions and hope this can get a reasonable transfer price between posts.” “We support the Administration‘s actions to address a longstanding issue,” Davison said, “but remain cautious that this not ultimately undermine commerce or postal finances.” Beyond its concerns over the UPU, the ACMA and its members continue to work with Congress on postal reform issues as well. “However the election shakes out,” Davison said, “we look forward to working with Congressional leadership on reforming our postal system to ensure our members can continue enjoying its fine services with affordable rates.”

Label and Graphic Materials • Reported sales increased 5.0 percent; on an organic basis, sales grew 6.4 percent.
