Reopening of a East Millinocket Paper Mill Postponed
The reopening of a paper mill in East Millinocket is being delayed for a week.The mill, now owned by Cate Street Capital, is expected to open October 17th, putting 250 people to work. The mill plans to ship its first order of virgin newsprint overseas by early next month. Company Spokesman Scott Tranchemontagne says the delay was caused by a lack of available wood because of wet conditions in Maine’s forests. Cate Street is also planning to reopen a shuttered mill in Millinocket, but no date has been set.
