Pennsylvania-based Pixelle Specialty Solutions, a leading provider of specialty papers, announced that it has secured  significant new financing, positioning the company with ample liquidity for continued future growth.

The recent financing, which includes new capital investment and amendments to the Company’s  credit facilities, was completed in collaboration with the Company’s existing lenders and has substantially bolstered the Company's cash liquidity position.  This strategic transaction provides a significant injection of fresh capital to invest in the Company’s manufacturing capabilities and  to drive improved operational performance at the Company’s three paper mills going forward.

With this new support, we are well-positioned to take advantage of several key initiatives we have underway to improve our cost structure and invest in our manufacturing capabilities."

In addition to the lender financing, Pixelle's private equity sponsor has made a significant incremental capital investment in the company, emphasizing the solid business fundamentals and long-term potential of Pixelle as a leading provider of specialty paper products. Bushnell affirmed, "Our operational performance in Q2 of 2024 has shown significant improvement and we are committed to identifying and implementing additional improvements to our business in an effort to be the most reliable manufacturer of specialty papers in North America.  Our customers continue to support us with strong order volumes and a substantial backlog; in turn, we will continue to lean on the decades of tremendous experience of our leadership team in order to deliver value to all of our stakeholders including those customers as well as our capital partners, employees, suppliers and communities."
