America’s Dunn Paper has said it will cease production at its Port Huron plant amid ongoing cash flow and economic challenges.
The site has been supplying specialty paper to the food and medical industries since 1924.
Wade Kemnitz, President and Chief Executive, Dunn Paper, said: “The decision to close Port Huron was not an easy one. “This difficult decision is the result of ongoing challenges to generate positive cash flow in the face of adverse economic factors.”
Dunn Paper will continue to produce Machine Glazed products at its Menominee, Michigan, and Wiggins, Mississippi, sites, including waxed products and its BiOrigin line.
“We are working with the employees at Port Huron to make this transition as seamless as possible,” Kemnitz added.
Dunn Paper has been a leader in paper industry innovation ever since 1924 and focuses on manufacturing and supplying eco-friendly specialty paper and tissue in North America.
