The fourth sheeting line at the UPM Kymi paper mill started full production at the end of October, strengthening UPM’s position on the market for graphic fine paper sheets. The new sheeting line, comprised of a folio sheeter, conveyors and a packaging line further expands the paper production area of the UPM Kymi integrated mill site. The new line was built in a space previously used as a warehouse, specifically converted for this purpose. The project was safely and successfully completed despite restrictions of Covid-19. Start-up took place on 24 September and performance tests have been conducted throughout October. The new line will produce coated and uncoated graphic fine paper sheets.

Delaware-based global water technologies leader Solenis has chosen its hometown of Wilmington as the site for a $40 million research and development expansion. In response to increasing market demand for its sustainability-focused products and expertise and with an eye toward long-term growth, Solenis will expand its R&D operations with a move to the 100,000-square-foot Building 713 at Chestnut Run Innovation and Science Park (CRISP). CRISP is a former DuPont campus that MRA Group is developing into a hub for a range of life sciences and advanced chemical companies. The new CRISP facility will provide Solenis with 20,000 square feet more lab space than the company currently has at its existing R&D center on Ashland’s Wilmington campus. In addition to more space, the larger, upgraded site will allow Solenis to add up to 46 new highly skilled Delaware jobs — including lab technicians, scientists and R&D supervisors — within the next three years.
