Galvan Protects $300M Clearwater Paper Mill Investment

 In News

Clearwater Paper Corp. is spending $330 million to add another building to its tissue production facility in Shelby, a move that will add 180 jobs to the 264 that are already there. It’s adding production and distribution space to a new building located next door to the original 990,000-square-foot, $280 million facility that opened in 2012.


Construction on the second building started during the second quarter of 2017. The new tissue machine in the building should be in operation in early 2019 and fully operational in 2020.


Galvan Industries is hot dip galvanizing structural steel for the new plant. Hot-dip galvanizing adds substantial value to the project because of its long-life and ultra-low maintenance. Even in the aggressive, corrosive environment of a pulp and paper mill, galvanized steel will protect the interests of Clearwater Paper without increasing the capital cost of this critical investment for many years to come.
