Timetable: Pixelle has begun the hiring process and will continue into 2023. In addition, the #24 paper machine is expected to be running sometime in early 2023.
The North American uncoated free sheet market is undersupplied due to competitor capacity conversions to packaging grades and current economic and supply chain conditions. This presents an opportunity for Pixelle to capture underserved market demand by upgrading and repairing its #24 machine, adding efficiency, and a competitive advantage.
Pixelle selected Ohio because of the favorable cost of doing business and its high-quality workforce.
