Verso Corporation's (NYSE: VRS) Stevens Point Mill in Wisconsin this month celebrates a century of excellence in making specialty papers. With a 100-year tradition of innovation, passion and customer commitment that continues today, the Stevens Point Mill is North America's largest state-of-the-art specialty paper mill with the capacity to produce 200,000 tons of high-performing specialty paper annually.

"We are extremely proud of the generations of dedicated men and women whose papermaking expertise has made the Stevens Point Mill an industry leader over the past century," said Verso President of Graphic Papers Mike Weinhold. "As we celebrate the mill's 100-year anniversary, our Steven's Point team is more committed than ever to delivering the innovative products that help make our customers successful."

"Our mill's long-standing reputation for quality products, unmatched customer service, committed environmental stewardship and generous community involvement is a testament to the exceptional people who've worked here over the years," said Stevens Point Mill Manager Craig Helgeson. "I want to thank all of our team members, past and present, for their dedication to our mill, our customers and our neighbors."

On July 11, 1918, the Consolidated Water Power and Paper Company began construction of a hydroelectric plant and paper machine complex that produced its first ton of paper in 1919. The mill's two paper machines manufactured 15 tons of fruit wrap tissue, tissue paper, toweling and crepe paper per day, transitioning over the next few years to waxed bread wraps and high-grade crepe papers. When consumers moved away from paper bread wraps to plastic in the mid-1950s, the mill diversified its product line into flexible packaging papers with a focus on food packaging – a forward thinking decision that continues to benefit the mill and its customers decades later.

The mill invested over $300 million in the 1990s, increasing capacity to more than 480 tons per day and providing the opportunity to meet customer needs in additional markets such as thermally printed labels, wet strength beverage labels and release liner papers. Continuing investment and rapid innovation in the 2000s have resulted in exciting new customer partnerships and additional capacity, now at approximately 550 tons per day.  

"Verso's Stevens Point Mill was founded on hard work, integrity, innovation and a relentless drive to satisfy our customers," said Verso Vice President and General Manager of Specialty Papers Ed Buehler. "These values and ideals, combined with our state-of-the-art facility and unwavering commitment to excellence, continue to position the mill as a specialty papers leader among packaging converters and consumer brands nationwide and in more than 20 countries around the globe."

Verso Corporation (NYSE: VRS) and Sappi North America today praised the decision of a World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute settlement panel, which upheld the imposition of antidumping and countervailing duties on imports from Indonesia. The decision, released yesterday, confirms that the U.S. acted consistently with its WTO obligations when it imposed countervailing duties of 17.93 percent and antidumping duties of 20.13 percent.

verso logo 2018Yesterday's decision means that countervailing duties that were imposed in November 2010 on certain types of coated paper from Indonesia will remain in effect. The Department of Commerce and the International Trade Commission determined in 2016 that the market situation warranted the continuation of the duties for an additional 5-year period. The paper products covered by the petitions include certain types of coated paper that use sheet-fed presses with a GE brightness rating of 80 or higher and weighing up to 340 grams per square meter. The papers are used in commercial printing to create magazines, books, direct mailing, and corporate collateral.

Michael Weinhold, President of Graphic Papers at Verso Corporation said, "Verso is very pleased with the WTO Panel's decision in DS491, which will help ensure that duties remain in place to counter the dumping and subsidization of Indonesian coated paper. We also want to thank the U.S. Trade Representative's Office, and officials from the International Trade Commission and Department of Commerce, who worked diligently to defend these decisions and ensure strong enforcement of our trade laws."

Mark Gardner, President and CEO of Sappi North America added, "We are very happy with the outcome of this dispute. Subsidized imports injure U.S. producers, and it is important to keep the offsetting duties in place."

Parties have 60 days to appeal the ruling to the WTO Appellate Body.

Verso Corporation (NYSE: VRS) has just announced plans to permanently shut down the No. 3 paper machine and associated equipment at its Androscoggin Mill in Jay, Maine, reducing annual coated paper production capacity at the mill by approximately 200,000 tons.  The shutdown will be effective August 1 and is expected to be complete by the end of the third quarter of 2017.  The No. 3 paper machine and a recovery boiler and digester that support it were idled in January of this year in response to declining customer demand that resulted in more coated paper capacity than could be filled.  Most products made on the No. 3 paper machine were transitioned to lower-cost machines in other Verso mills. 

verso logo 2017"Verso is leaving no stone unturned in our efforts to move the company toward sustained profitability in a market where customer demand for our graphic paper products continues to decline," said Verso Chief Executive Officer B. Christopher DiSantis.  "Consistently matching the supply of our graphic paper products with customer demand for them, dramatically reducing our costs and rapidly diversifying our product portfolio into growing markets are essential keys to Verso's future success, and we're relentlessly pursuing all three across the company.  Although the footprint of the Androscoggin Mill is getting smaller, we continue to take steps to position the facility as a leading producer for the growing specialty papers market."

The permanent shutdown of the No. 3 paper machine and associated equipment will impact approximately 120 employees at the Androscoggin Mill.  Employees affected by the shutdown will receive severance in accordance with Verso's severance policy and Maine state law.   Verso's Human Resources team will immediately begin scheduling individual meetings with these employees to provide support and detailed information on severance and related issues.

"While permanently closing this capacity is the right strategic decision for Verso as a whole, we are mindful of the effects this action will have on the people at the Androscoggin Mill who are directly affected, and we are committed to treating them with fairness, dignity and respect during this difficult time," DiSantis said.  "On behalf of the entire Verso team, I want to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to them for their dedicated service and many contributions to the mill and to our company."

Promotion Features Innovative U.S. Manufacturer Oru Kayak®

Verso Corporation (NYSE: VRS) continues to celebrate innovative U.S. manufacturers that share its passion for being the best at what they do with the release of the second in its series of printed promotions titled Sterling® Premium. ELEVATED.

2017 04 19 085748

 

"Verso's Sterling® Premium challenged the paper quality/cost paradigm to create a first – premium paper at a budget friendly price," said Verso President of Graphic Papers Mike Weinhold. "We established a new status quo, and then challenged it again, improving shade and brightness to a whiter-white 96 – at the same great price." 

"Sterling® Premium's new, brilliantly bright optics combined with premium surface quality, print performance, product breadth, sustainability and service have elevated the definition of what it means to be the best of the best," said Verso Brand Marketing Manager Tanya Pipo. "When we were looking for like-minded companies that share the same passion and courage for elevating their brands to the next level we were introduced to Oru Kayak® in San Francisco. Like Sterling® Premium, Oru Kayak is elevating the expectation of how to make quality kayaks with premium attributes at a reasonable price."

ADVENTURE, ELEVATED. Oru Kayak® co-founder and designer Anton Willis developed the concept of a foldable kayak designed with quality, aesthetics and portability in mind. "It was origami that got me thinking," he says. "What if you could actually make a kayak that folded up like a piece of paper?" Through great design, portability, lighter weight and lower price than a conventional craft with no sacrifice in performance, Oru Kayak® is changing the game, elevating adventure on the water by making it more accessible to more people.

PAPER, ELEVATED. This new printed brochure showcases the brighter, whiter shade and exceptional print quality of Sterling® Premium through detailed imagery of beautifully crafted kayaks. The print demonstrations on gloss, dull/silk and matte finishes highlight the paper's premium surface quality, and the print comparisons between Sterling® Premium sheetfed and Sterling® Premium Digital™ for HP Indigo show the flawless print quality from offset to digital. The promotion is enhanced with a short video featuring the founders of Oru Kayak® using Layar® technology, a leading augmented reality app. Verso Marketing Communications Manager Julie Davis explains, "When printed images are scanned using the Layar® app, the technology recognizes the image and relates it to a piece of registered content with Layar®. This is an exceptional way to show how print links to new technology for a deeper experience without ever leaving the printed page."

Sterling® Premium has the widest and deepest offering of any premium grade, with a full line of sizes, finishes and weights to meet any need. Sterling® Premium offers true premium selection, with the industry's broadest range of basis weights—70 lb. text through 130 lb. cover, including 7 pt. and 9 pt. caliper guaranteed products for direct mail. The product line also includes two matching digital companion products, Sterling® Premium Digital™ and Sterling® Premium Digital™ for HP Indigo, guaranteed on all digital offset, toner and HP Indigo print equipment. Sterling® Premium is available with post-consumer recycled fiber, complies with Lacey Act requirements and is chain-of-custody tri-certified to the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) BV-COC-953662, Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification™ (PEFC™) BV-PEFCCOC-US09000012, and Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®), BV-SFICOC-US09000011 standards.
