U.S. paper producer ND Paper has unveiled plans to "strategically inject investment capital" to upgrade the com-pany’s paper mills in Maine and Wisconsin in 2020.


"At our Rumford, Maine facility, our pulp dryer and all three paper machines will undergo significant upgrades," the manufacturer said in a statement. "This investment will not only enhance the quality of our printing and writing and C1S grades, but also ensure the long-term viability of the Rumford Division."


The firm’s portfolio includes pulp and paper products, printing papers, containerboard, and market pulp, according to data from ND Paper.
