Rumford’s R-12 machine has been running trial production of uncoated paper for several weeks. I’m pleased to announce that the trials have been successful, and on next Monday, April 18, we’ll be letting our customers know that we’ll be offering this uncoated free sheet product from our Rumford mill beginning in May.
The grade is called Rumford Offset and will be available in 50#, 60#, and 70# text basis weights.
Thanks to those who have worked hard to get R-12 productive and contributing to the revitalization of the mill and to Catalyst’s expanded product offering.
