NATCHEZ – Officials from von Drehle Corporation said the company is locating manufacturing operations to Natchez. The company, which provides paper products to commercial and industrial consumers nationwide, will create at least 100 new jobs; make investments in additional converting equipment and subsequently install a paper machine.
Von Drehle has acquired the former Mississippi River Pulp facility, which closed its doors in November 2012. From its new Natchez location, von Drehle will manufacture paper products formerly produced by Mississippi River Pulp, as well as its own product lines.
MDA assisted von Drehle with this project, providing guidance on available tax incentives. In addition, Adams County is providing support for this project.
Established in 1974, von Drehle maintains manufacturing operations in North Carolina, Nevada and Tennessee.
Through an international network of more than 400 distributor partners, the Hickory, N.C.-based company sells towel, tissue and dispenser products to industrial, commercial and institutional distributors, contract
cleaners and building-maintenance service providers.
