Great Northern Paper

For more than 100 years Great Northern Paper in East Millinocket, Maine, has served the newspaper and publishing industry by producing high performance paper using carefully selected wood from the great northern forests of Maine. Converting to a trucked natural gas will enable the company to run a second paper machine as needed to fill new orders for newsprint and book stock. As reported in the Portland Press Herald on Jan. 10, “It’s about costs, but it’s also about increasing capacity and being able to compete in the market by producing more paper,” said Scott Tranchemontagne, a spokesman for Cate Street Capital, which owns the mill. “That’s an important thing for us right now.”
