EPA Air Rules Hurt Paper Industry
Scott Suder, Wisconsin Paper Council President, said the EPA air rule needlessly hurts Wisconsin’s paper industry. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently passed incredibly stringent air quality regulations. The new rule will have significant and adverse impacts on manufacturing, including Wisconsin’s paper industry, a major driver of the local economy.
Wisconsin's Converting Industry
The “Converting Corridor” from Green Bay to Milwaukee boasts logistics support, from inventory assistance to management of shipment schedules. Wisconsin is second only to Indiana as a manufacturing state. What affects converting affects all these associated companies in the “corridor” and converting throughout the state.
