Resolute Forest Products will be one of the few fully integrated tissue manufacturers in North America. We produce a wide range of tissue products, including bath, towel, napkins and facial tissue. Our facilities give us a well-established presence in retail and away-from-home tissue product manufacturing and are ideally situated to serve Eastern U.S. customers.
Our new state-of-the-art facility scheduled to begin production in early 2017 in Calhoun (Tennessee) will manufacture 66,000 short tons (60,000 metric tons) per year of premium, private-label tissue, including bath and towel, aimed at the growing retail market.
In November 2015, we acquired Florida-based Atlas Paper Holdings, Inc., a manufacturer of tissue products for the away-from-home and private-label at-home markets. The Atlas Paper (www.atlaspapermills.com) facilities have a combined annual production capacity of 63,000 short tons (57,000 metric tons) and include three tissue machines, 11 converting lines and one recycling center (www.accuratepaper.com, www.accushred.com). Atlas Paper offers both virgin and recycled products in a wide range of grades: economy, value and premium. Branded products are marketed under the Windsor Place®, Green Heritage®, Bunny Soft® and Harmony® brands.
