MeadWestvaco Will Optimize Operations

November 11, 2005

MeadWestvaco Corporation announced plans to permanently shut down eight sheeting machines used to convert rolls of paper into sheets at the company’s Luke, MD, paper manufacturing facility in 2003.

In addition, MeadWestvaco will expand sheeting capacity at its Chillicothe, OH location.

Approximately 150 positions will be eliminated as a result of the shutting down of the eight paper sheeting machines at the Luke mill. The mill will continue to perform a limited amount of sheeting, company executives said.

Executives also announced that the company will install a new sheeting machine at its Chillicothe converting center, requiring the addition of approximately 50 employees.
“Consolidating MeadWestvaco’s sheeting operations is consistent with our merger integration objectives—to provide excellent customer service with controlled costs and increased efficiency,” said Ian W. Millar, president, MeadWestvaco Papers Group.

The company produces coated papers for catalogs, annual reports, magazines, textbooks and coffee table books; carbonless papers for busines forms and receipts; digital papers for commercial and desktop printing and labels for food beverages.
