What's That in the Sky?

If you’ve wondered about all the cones and blocked off areas in Calendering and Stock Cutting, just look up. We’re in the middle of one of the biggest roofing projects in the last couple of years at the plant.

Some fun facts:

  • 32,000 sq. ft of concrete decking is being replaced.
  • Why concrete on the roof? When the plant was built in 1945, steel was in short supply because of the war.

If the weather cooperates, the project will wrap up by mid-September.
