NATCHEZ, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Officials from von Drehle and state and local officials gathered Monday for a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the company's future paper machine facility in Natchez. Von Drehle, a paper products supplier to commercial and industrial users nationwide, announced in 2013 it had acquired the former Mississippi River Pulp facility and would purchase new converting equipment and install a paper machine. 

The project represents an estimated $100 million corporate investment and will create at least 100 jobs with the potential to increase to 150 when completed.

“I am pleased to see von Drehle's progress in Natchez and commend the company on this milestone. Today's groundbreaking puts von Drehle one step closer to providing more than 100 new job opportunities for the area's residents, and it demonstrates the commitment the company has made to Natchez and Adams County,” said Gov. Phil Bryant. 

The Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project for the construction of an access road to the new facility. Adams County provided assistance in the form of tax abatements.
