Mill Details


Original mill opened in 1968.
Second paper machine added in 1975.
Third paper machine and new pulp line added in 1979.
Became part of Domtar Inc. in 2001.
On December 10, 2014, we announced a $160 million capital project to convert a paper machine at the Ashdown, Arkansas mill to a high quality fluff pulp line used in absorbent applications such as baby diapers, feminine hygiene and adult incontinence products. The planned conversion is expected to come online by the third quarter of 2016 and will allow for the production of up to 516,000 metric tons of fluff pulp per year once the machine is in full operation. The project will also result in the permanent reduction of 364,000 short tons annual uncoated freesheet production capacity in the second quarter of 2016. The table below does not reflect this conversion.

MILL PERFORMANCE Annual paper production capacity of 629,000 short tons.
Annual pulp production capacity of 707,000 tonnes (ADMT).
3 pulp lines and 3 paper machines.
PRODUCTS Uncoated freesheet papers: Offset, copy paper, laser form bond and check paper.

Cellulose fibers: Bleached softwood kraft market pulp.
