PARK FALLS: FLAMBEAU RIVER PAPERS' LAY-OFF AND SEARCH FOR A BUYER [Message #1]

UPDATE (7/9/2019): See related, updated story at http://www.mypricecounty.com/forum/viewtopic.php?TopicID=1060

UPDATE (6/10/2019): Last week, the buyer who purchases all the paper at Flambeau River Papers announced they will no longer be buying the paper from the mill. Therefore, the mill is in the process of shutting down the equipment and the entire plant shortly. A buyer is still being sought.

MAY 14, 2019:

Flambeau River Papers in Park Falls has given 60-day lay-off notices to employees and is seeking a buyer.

A press release stated that "a receiver will be appointed under Chapter 128," which is a voluntary debt consolidation plan in Wisconsin, (which is the opposite of bankruptcy, as debts will be repaid). "The receiver is authorized to continue to run the business and intends to do so while seeking the customary relief offered under this statute."

Flambeau River Papers gave 60 day notices to insure that employees can seek new employment and that there is no interruption in supply.

The company also stated that a smaller, more focused paper mill should enhance the ability to find the right buyer.
