Entz will oversee the complete refurbishment and restart of the mill, which closed in 2005.

Timothy Meyer, Managing Director of The Gores Group, noted that Entz has proven himself to be a strong leader with a talent for achieving full operating potential in his mills.

Entz said he was looking forward to starting production as soon as possible.
