Pixelle To Restart Ohio Paper Machine

Pixelle Specialty Solutions, a manufacturer of specialty papers in North America, plans to restart a paper machine in the Chillicothe, Ohio, facility.

The company is investing $21 million to upgrade and restart the #24 paper machine (PM24) and plans to hire 52 full-time employees to operate and maintain it.

Pixelle will also fill 50 temporary positions to support construction and engineering requirements related to the restart.

PM24 was originally built as a coated printing papers machine, upgraded most recently in the 1990s. Pixelle idled the machine in 2017 based on declining supply-demand market dynamics at the time.

Pixelle expects the machine to be fully online shipping quality specialty papers in early first quarter 2023.
