Senator Ron Johnson tours CWARPB

WISCONSINRAPIDSTRIBUNE.COM: Wisconsin’s Republican senator, Ron Johnson, stopped by the former Domtar paper mill in Port Edwards on (October 7) to tour what is now known as the Central Wisconsin Applied Research & Business Park. Six years ago, in 2008, the Port Edwards Domtar mill shuttered, eliminating 501 jobs, because of declining paper markets and growing expenses of operating the mill. At the time of its closing, Domtar was the largest employer in Port Edwards.

Now, the Central Wisconsin Applied Research & Business Park is owned by DMI Acquisitions LLC, a Columbus, Ohio-based company that acquired it with the intention of bringing new biomass-based businesses to the site. Read more about the Senator’s visit.
