Clearwater Paper Corporation, a premier supplier of quality tissue and bleached paperboard products, today reported that it temporarily suspended certain manufacturing operations at its Lewiston, Idaho facility. An incident impacting the regional natural gas system has resulted in the disruption of natural gas deliveries to the mill and the surrounding areas.
“We are focused on the safety of our employees and maintaining our assets while we wait for repairs on the gas pipeline to be completed,” said Arsen Kitch, president and chief executive officer. “We expect to resume the impacted operations in the coming days.”
Clearwater Paper is a premier supplier of private brand tissue to major retailers, including grocery, club, mass merchants, and discount stores. In addition, the company produces bleached paperboard used by quality-conscious printers and packaging converters, and offers services that include custom sheeting, slitting, and cutting. Clearwater Paper's employees build shareholder value by developing strong relationships through quality and service.
