Natchez to get 100 new jobs

Posted: Updated:

NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Von Drehle Corporation officials say the Natchez plant will be the company's only "all-under-one-roof" facility.

company engineer Tanya Richardson told a local civic club this week that the operation would have pulp converting and paper manufacturing capabilities, the company's only plant to have both. Von Drehle, which provides paper products to commercial and industrial consumers nationwide, expects to create at least 100 new jobs.

The company operates at the former Mississippi River Pulp location, which von Drehle purchased in January after MRP announced a shutdown of its operation in October 2012.

Von Drehle will manufacture paper products formerly produced by MRP as well as its own product lines. It has operations in North Carolina, Nevada and Tennessee.
