Expanding Our Presence in the Tissue Market

Resolute Forest Products’ strategy to diversify into the tissue business relies on two powerful drivers.

We are building a $270 million state-of-the-art facility in Calhoun (Tennessee) to manufacture premium private-label tissue, including bath and towel, aimed at the growing retail market. Once fully operational, in 2017, this will be one of the most competitive and efficient tissue operations in North America, positioning Resolute as a key player in the 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. Atlas Paper offers both virgin and recycled products in a wide range of grades: economy, value and premium. Its branded products are marketed under the Windsor Place®, Green Heritage®, Bunny Soft® and Harmony® brands.

Committed to Building the Resolute of the Future

All of our Atlas Paper tissue products are made from 100% recycled wastepaper or virgin fiber. The recycled tissue products are:

  • 100% elemental chlorine-free
  • Qualified for LEED® certification points, representing exceptional customer value when compared to other certifiably green tissue-based products

As well, the Green Heritage brand commercial tissue products carry the Green Seal™ certification mark of environmental responsibility to assure customers they are choosing truly "green" products that are better for their health and the environment.

End-uses: bath tissue, paper towel, table napkins, facial tissue, wrapping material
