Having put difficult creditor protection proceedings behind us, Resolute Forest Products has seized the opportunity to transform the organization. We are moving forward with a leaner financial structure, a flexible, low-cost operating platform and an increasingly diversified product mix designed to better capture value throughout market cycles and capitalize on export opportunities.
Through strategically targeted capacity reductions, we have streamlined our asset base to concentrate on highly competitive, top-performing facilities, enabling the Company to significantly improve operating efficiency. This initiative has also brought our paper production capacity in line with current market realities, reducing overall capacity from 10.4 million metric tons in 2007 to 7 million metric tons today.
Expanded Product Portfolio
Resolute is focused on supplying customers with the right products – innovative, high-quality and eco-friendly – backed by an enhanced commitment to best-in-class service.
Noteworthy recent additions to our portfolio include a range of uncoated freesheet substitutes that have a significantly lower environmental impact than the papers they are designed to replace. This value-added product line includes grades specially formulated for laser and inkjet printing, which are promising growth markets.
Resolute is already known for its exceptionally broad product offering, particularly in coated and uncoated mechanical papers, and is one of the few producers capable of supplying five different grades of market pulp. Our Company is also a major producer of lumber and engineered wood products.
