Resolute Forest Products Inc., Montreal, Que., Canada, this week announced the selection of a state-of-the-art tissue machine for the project at its Calhoun mill, in Tenn., USA. Supplied by Valmet, the Advantage New Tissue Technology (NTT) machine will produce premium quality tissue products for the consumer market.

This machine is part of the previously announced $270 million project to build a facility to manufacture at-home, premium private label tissue paper, including bath and towel. Preparation work has begun at Calhoun, and the machine is expected to start making tissue in the first quarter of 2017.
"This is the first time we will produce products directly for the consumer market," said Richard Garneau, president and CEO. "The selection of the Advantage NTT tissue machine is in line with our promise to retailers to install equipment that will offer the highest quality and the differentiation they seek for their store brands." 

Resolute notes that the move into the tissue market represents an important step forward in its corporate growth strategy, and the company will continue to evaluate opportunities to expand its presence in this growing market segment.
