Paper Machine Closes 

The closure means that 150 people will lose their jobs. Some have been with Domtar for decades.

The Canadian paper producer cites excess capacity and a need for cost-competitiveness as reasons for the shutdown.

Senators Collins and Snowe have pledged to support the workers who are losing their jobs.

Governor Baldacci is also planning to mobilize state assistance to help the workers and their families to get back on their feet.
