Sappi announces change in leadership at Cloquet mill
The $170 million "Project Athena" is complete and Sappi Fine Paper Managing Director Rick Dwyer is retiring. Dwyer has been replaced by Mike Schultz, a former mill managing director who directed the recently completed conversion project, which transformed Cloquet's pulp mill from producing hardwood kraft pulp to chemical cellulose. It was the largest capital investment in Cloquet since the $500 million former Potlatch mill expansion here in the 1990s.
Schultz is excited.
