ST Tissue is a tissue manufacturer located in Isle of Wight County, VA, bordering on the city of Franklin, VA. Our site footprint includes 2 papermachines, a state-of-the-art fiber recycling plant, warehousing space, and a few office buildings. In the 1st quarter of 2013, ST Tissue completed the conversion of an existing printing and writing grade paper machine into the world’s widest tissue machine and has since started up this tissue machine (PM6), which is capable of producing napkin and toweling products. We are excited to be part of the community in Isle of Wight and neighboring Franklin as well, and we will be hiring up to 85 employees over the course of the next year.
Our tissue machine is capable of producing a variety of semi-crepe tissue grades from napkin to towels, and bleached to kraft products. The width of our tissue machine will provide us the opportunity to offer a variety of trim sizes and our onsite recycled fiber plant will allow us the flexibility to transform wastepaper into different grades of recycled pulp.
ST Tissue’s goal is to provide our customers with high-quality tissue at a competitive price, along with world class service and reliability. We also are proud to provide a safe, stable, and nurturing environment for all our new employees, while also taking seriously our responsibility as environmental stewards for the community. Our team is proud of the track record we have established at our Oconto Falls, WI tissue mill, and we are looking forward to doing the same at our mill in Virginia.
