Mill Tour Brings 60 AICC Members Together

More than 60 attendees participated in the 2023 AICC Southeast Summit in Kingsport, Tennessee, touring Domtar’s mill, and playing in the annual golf tournament.

AICC members, including several first-time Summit attendees, saw Domtar’s modernized, Kingsport Mill. Originally opened in 1916, the mill is a downtown landmark on the Holston River. 

Through extensive renovation, Domtar converted the facility into the company’s first 100 percent recycled containerboard facility. It is expected that the mill will be able to produce and market about 600,000 tons of recycled linerboard and corrugated medium annually, making it the second-largest recycled containerboard machine in North America. Domtar sells its output to independents. 

The attendees received a tour that began with the historical aspects of the mill and progressed through the renovations and upgrades that have made the mill a showcase of the most modern paper-making technology. 

The mill utilizes 50,000 tons of recycling residuals and other by-products that otherwise would enter landfills.

The golf tournament was held on the Cattails Golf Course at the MeadowView Marriott Resort. 

The 39th Annual West Coast Golf Tournament will be held October 17 at the Strawberry Farms Golf Club in Irvine, California.
