Paper products maker von Drehle takes over shuttered Natchez plant

logoPaper products manufacturer von Drehle Corp. is taking over the former Mississippi River Pulp plant in Natchez and will begin operations there with a workforce of at least 100 people.

Hickory, N.C.-based von Drehle provides paper products to commercial and industrial consumers nationwide. The company says it will make investments in additional converting equipment and subsequently will install a paper machine at the Natchez plant.

The former Mississippi River Pulp facility closed in November. From its new Natchez location, von Drehle will manufacture paper products formerly produced by Mississippi River Pulp, as well as its own product lines.

Established in 1974, von Drehle has manufacturing operations in North Carolina, Nevada and Tennessee. Through an international network of more than 400 distributor partners, the company sells towel, tissue and dispenser products to industrial, commercial and institutional distributors, contract cleaners and building-maintenance service providers.
