Clearwater Paper Corporation announced the permanent closure of its Oklahoma City converting facility and permanent shutdown of two tissue machines at the company's Neenah, Wisconsin, tissue facility. "As an integral step in our overall strategy to optimize our operations through better asset utilization, we will be taking these difficult but necessary actions while delivering on our growth objectives," said Pat Burke, group president for Clearwater Paper. Clearwater Paper intends to run its Oklahoma City facility until its permanent closure on March 31, 2017. All of the facility's 131 employees will be impacted. The facility converts large parent rolls of tissue into packaged products. Also, as part of an overall facility optimization and restructuring plan, Clearwater Paper's Neenah location will permanently shut down two of the company's highest-cost tissue machines, affecting approximately 85 of the facility's approximate 400 employees and removing a total production capacity of 32,000 tons beginning December 31, 2016. Three remaining tissue machines will continue to manufacture an array of private label and away-from-home tissue products. click Read More below for additional detail
It is one of life’s little ironies that today, when fewer people wear wristwatches than at any time in the last century, we are more aware of time’s passage than ever before. Smartphones and the web have forced upon us deadlines – personal and professional – that are measured in hours rather than days. Yet historically timepieces have been cherished as much for their beauty and intricacy of detail as their timekeeping abilities. It is these aspects of the “chronograph” that are celebrated in Royal Essence’s labeling and packaging for L’oeuvre du Temps (literally “the work of time”) crafted by CD Design.
