Expanding Our Presence in the Tissue Market

Resolute Forest Products is building one of the most integrated and competitive tissue businesses in North America.

We have completed construction of a slightly over $270 million state-of-the-art facility in Calhoun (Tennessee) with the capacity to manufacture 66,000 short tons (60,000 metric tons) annually of premium private-label tissue, including bath and towel, aimed at the growing at-home market. With its world-class tissue machine and three converting lines, this will be one of the most efficient tissue operations in North America, positioning Resolute as a key player in the market.

In 2016, we continued to consolidate Atlas Tissue into our business. A manufacturer of branded and private-label tissue products for retail and away-from-home markets, Atlas Tissue has two manufacturing facilities in Florida with a production capacity of 62,000 short tons (56,000 metric tons) across three tissue machines and 11 converting lines. We offer Green Seal™-certified 100% recycled products and virgin paper grades. Branded products include Windsor Place®, Green Heritage®, Harmony®, Bunny Soft® and Eversoft®.

Fully Integrated Manufacturer of Quality Products

Resolute’s tissue operations benefit from vertical integration. Our tissue products are manufactured from 100% recycled pulp or from virgin fiber (less than 3% sourced externally) from the company’s internal market pulp network. This allows us to control the production process – from material input to final product – ensuring precise control, cost-competitiveness and consistent quality, while offering the flexibility and customization our customers demand.
