LINCOLN, ME, April 24, 2014 (Bangor Daily News) - Lincoln Paper and Tissue LLC's plan to improve its energy efficiency by spending $7.8 million to retrofit its tissue production line will also result in some layoffs, a company official said Wednesday.
Coming in response to an explosion last November that destroyed the mill's ability to manufacture pulp, the plan will result in a workplace that is "likely going to require fewer people," said mill co-owner Keith Van Scotter, whose factory employs approximately 190 workers.
"It's going to be a few," Van Scotter said of the layoffs. "The big driver is not [reducing] head count, but there will be some."
