GP Muskogee tissue mill back up after 13 May fire

Georgia-Pacific (GP) has confirmed that production has restarted at its recycled-content tissue paper mill and converting operation in Muskogee, USA.

A spokesperson for the company told TWM that: “The mill managed a safe and effective restart of various lines over several days and continues to ramp up production.”

Start-up has been gradual and commenced in the middle of June.

The spokesperson added that he couldn’t provide a specific restart date because “it wasn’t a matter of everything restarting at once”.

According to reports, the mill had shut down on 13 May after a forklift explosion and major fire damaged two converting and parent roll storage buildings.

Start-up was delayed by severe rains that occurred in the area.

None of the mill’s employees was hurt in the accident.

The Muskogee mill has five paper machines.
