GORHAM, NH, Dec. 27, 2013 (Local News) -When Mike Cummings took over as CEO of Gorham Paper and Tissue in May, the company had recently completed a $5 million investment, extending a natural gas line to the paper mill that had been converted to produce bathroom tissue and fast-food packaging materials.

The natural gas connection, completed in the fall of 2011, was designed to save money.

At the time, no one thought it would result in temporary shutdowns at the mill due to constraints on natural gas flowing into New England.
