LINCOLN, ME, April 22, 2014 (Local News) -Lincoln Paper and Tissue continues to take steps forward after a boiler explosion last November forcing half of its workforce to be laid off. A new partnership with Efficiency Maine will allow the mill to receive one million dollars in grant money to update their machines causing them to become more energy efficient and profitable.

Vice President of Operations Marco L'Italien with Lincoln Paper and Tissue said, "You have to be very very good or your competition will beat you out. So it is a challenge...We used to have 370 employees here. Now we have about 200. Right now we are trying to make sure that number doesn't continue to slide."

The funding will go towards the mill's renovation project to update their tissue making facility.
