KapStone Paper and Packaging Corporation is announcing that due to seasonally softer market conditions, it will temporarily curtail operations at its Longview Mill beginning Monday, Dec. 21 at 7:00 a.m. The curtailment is expected to last seven days for the entire mill and will be extended an additional two days for certain product grades and paper machines. No other KapStone mill location will be taking market-related downtime during this period. This measure will not affect customer orders and service.

Headquartered in Northbrook, Illinois, USA, KapStone Paper and Packaging Corporation is the fifth largest producer of containerboard and corrugated packaging products and is the largest kraft paper producer in the United States. The company has four paper mills, 22 converting plants and 65 distribution centers.
