Boise to invest
$60 million
in PS production
Boise Paper, of Boise, ID, USA, has announced that it will invest $60 million to increase its capacity to manufacture pressure sensitive papers for the label market.
Boise says that its investment will provide incremental pressure sensitive capacity of more than 200,000 tons. The project will shift existing commodity production capacity to specialty paper production. The company expects final board approval for the project later this year. Installation and startup are on schedule to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2006.
Company officials cite growing customer demand for pressure sensitive paper products, and to meet that demand they will reconfigure a 250" paper machine in Wallula, WA. Boise has been a manufacturer of pressure sensitive papers for more than 30 years, and offers a variety of substrates used as face stocks and release base stocks.
“We have proven our dedication to becoming a leading supplier to this market by building a focused business organization, expanding capacity allocations, and achieving growth through new product development,” says Kirk Allen, business leader of Boise Paper’s Label, Release & Specialty Papers business. “Our focus has never been clearer. We are investing to leverage proprietary technology on the ideal scale to be a leading supplier of pressure sensitive papers in North America and globally for many years to come.”
"The pressure sensitive market is the cornerstone in our strategy to grow in specialty and premium papers,” says Miles Hewitt, senior vice president and general manager of Boise Paper. “The combination of world-class scale, proprietary technology, and a geographic location suited for domestic and international growth make Boise the ideal choice to fulfill customers’ needs and will give Boise a competitive advantage in this market.”
