Paper Industry in Wisconsin and What Happened to It

Paper Industry in Wisconsin and What Happened to It

Appvion logo

We see the CCP and State supported Paper Companies pouring in Billions of Dollars buying up US and Canadian Paper Mills. Chinese and Indonesian companies are investing into mega-mills betting that China can control the Paper and Pulp Industry worldwide with low-cost paper. Simply the State of Wisconsin needs to re-focus its support and investment in the paper industry. If not, we will see China buying up our Converting, Printing, Packaging and Manufacturing Companies too! Wisconsin needs to be the leader in re-shoring our Paper Industry back to the USA! We have ALL the ASSETS to do it!
