Gorham, New Hampshire, Paper Mill Will Stay Open, Saving 240 Jobs

11/04/2010
MM Consulting and Contracting will purchase a paper mill in Gorham, New Hampshire, from Fraser Papers, keeping the mill open and saving about 240 jobs. In September, Fraser announced that it would shutter the facility indefinitely unless a buyer stepped in.

Governor John Lynch worked with the companies to seek a buyer for the mill.

"Governor Lynch made available [Department of Resources and Economic Development] Commissioner George Bald and all the resources the state could offer to save the mill. I am forever grateful to the Governor and George Bald for all their efforts and their commitment to the people of the North Country. It is truly a beautiful day in Gorham and Berlin [New Hampshire]," said Berlin Mayor Paul Grenier.

Several local, state, and federal entities are providing a total of $4 million for the project.
