Leaders from Expera Specialty Solutions say they'll be touring the former Wausau Paper Mosinee and Rhinelander paper mills in celebration of their first day of operation. The company say "Day 1" began on Wednesday, June 25. The mill tour is scheduled for Thursday.
In May, Wausau Paper signed an agreement to sell its specialty paper business as well as its Mosinee and Rhinelander mills. Wausau Paper got about $110 million in the agreement, but doesn't own any part of the new company.
The company also bought Kaukauna and De Pere mills from Thilmany Papers.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the mills produce products like candy wrappers and microwave popcorn bags.
A collective bargaining agreement covering employees in Mosinee, Rhinelander, and Kaukauna was signed as part of the deal.
