Over 800 to Lose Jobs in Rumford

Some employees at the NewPage mill in Rumford received bad news earlier (Nov. 19) today. Mill spokesman Anthony Lyons said about 830 could lose their jobs when they stop operation of one of their paper machines by mid-February.

Mark Lukacs, senior vice president of operations for the Ohio-based owner said in a statement: “We will be working with our Rumford management team to minimize the effects to our employees.”

The No. 12 paper machine is the one being shut down. It currently produces roughly 300 tons per day of coated paper used for magazines and catalogs. The demand for that product has decreased because of imports from paper mills in western Europe.
