August 08, 2013 - 11:04

BUCKSPORT, ME, Aug. 8, 2013 (Bangor Daily News) -Eastern Maine Community College, in coordination with Verso Paper and the town of Bucksport, is launching a new training program to prepare workers for the papermaking industry.

The program, which has been several years in the making, will be announced at an event Friday morning at the Bucksport Town Office.

"This really started almost four years ago when we had a meeting with the [Bucksport] Town Council," Bill Cohen, a Verso spokesman, told the Bangor Daily News on Wednesday. "They asked the question: What are the three things that keep you up at night? One of the highest ones on our list was the aging workforce getting ready to retire, and how were we going to replace that knowledge."
