Appleton paper company to add 50 jobs after singing new contact


APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - The Appleton paper company says it will add 50 jobs in its hometown, after an outside firm starts to provide base paper for creating some of Appleton’s specialty products. Appleton has reached an agreement with the Domtar Corporation. Domtar will provide base papers for 15 years, and will pay Appleton over $3-billion during that time. Appleton already makes base papers at a plant in West Carrollton Ohio – but that plant will lay off 330 people once the Domtar contract is finalized. About 100 people will remain at the Ohio plant. Jobs at Appleton’s other plant in Roaring Spring Pennsylvania will not be affected. The extra workers in Appleton will help convert the Domtar product into Appleton’s standard thermal, carbonless, and other specialty papers. Appleton CEO called the move a competitive necessity – and it has no bearing on the quality of the Ohio plant.
