April 6, 2018

“We’ve been very aggressive in terms of trying to get those areas ready for new industry to come in,” Shelby Mayor Stan Anthony said. “Our city, I’m convinced, has as much going on in terms of infrastructure improvements as we ever have.” James Jordan, Shelby plant manager for Clearwater Paper, said the city proved to be a terrific place to build the company’s newest state-of-the-art tissue machine. “Since we announced our plans for our first paper machine in Shelby, nearly seven years ago, the company’s experience working with the state and community has been exceptional with the region’s outstanding benefits like a business-friendly community, and overall quality of life. In addition, we believe our people are what give us a competitive advantage,” Jordan said.
