Written by

OLD TOWN - After sitting idle for years, the pulp mill in Old Town is going back into production.

ND Paper announced Wednesday that it will be purchasing the mill, shifting operations and investing in improvements to reduce costs.


The company plans to reopen the mill in early 2019, bringing more than 100 jobs to the region.


Maine Sens. Angus King and Susan Collins both applauded the investment in the state's forest economy, communities and families.
