  • New Grades, New Markets. When to change?

    24 June 2014

    When we took over the Alsip mill at the end of 2009, the country was just coming out of the recession and depressed advertising had really reduced the usage of coated paper. This mill made exclusively #5 light weight coated paper at the time. We all anticipated a rebound but the question was how much? Then in the Spring of 2010, the iPad was introduced. Within a year, it was clear that electronic media was going to steal a lot of share from print and the #5 market would probably take the heaviest hit because it served the lower end of the magazine and catalog segments.
