First Quality Finalizes Plans for Additional Tissue/Towel Manufacturing Facility

May 14, 2010

In July 2009, First Quality Tissue announced plans to build an additional tissue/towel manufacturing facility with a location to be announced at a later date. We are pleased to confirm that we have concluded our search and have selected Anderson, South Carolina as the site for First Quality’s expansion plans.

The initial plans for the Anderson County facility call for two state-of-the-art Thru-Air-Dried (TAD) machines being installed consecutively, doubling First Quality’s current capacity. The company is anticipating having the first machine operational in the 3rd Quarter of 2011 and the second machine on-line by 3rd Quarter 2012.

The company’s new investment in the Southeastern United States is another demonstration of First Quality’s commitment to the tissue and towel industry and its dedication to satisfying the needs of the market by providing innovative and high quality products.
