Resolute boosts capacity with Calhoun start-up

Resolute Forest Products has boosted its private label capacity with the start-up of its new tissue machine in Tennessee.

The first tissue parent roll was produced on 28 February 2017. It will continue its scheduled ramp-up through 2017 and is expected to be producing at maximum capacity toward mid-2018.

With its fully operational converting facility, converted tissue products sold from Calhoun are now manufactured entirely from parent rolls produced on-site.

The Calhoun tissue operation was built at Resolute’s pulp and paper mill and has the capacity to manufacture 60,000tpy of premium private-label tissue, including bath and towel, aimed at the at-home market.

It has three converting lines and will integrate pulp from the existing Calhoun pulp mill.
