PORT ALBERNI, BC, Feb. 26, 2013 /CNW/ - Catalyst Paper's Port Alberni
mill is marking 10 years as the supplier of coated mechanical paper for
Rolling Stone Magazine, Wenner Media's flagship publication. As the only producer of coated
mechanical paper in Western North America, Catalyst's Port Alberni mill
also supplies paper for the popular Men's Journal, and the Westcoast edition of Us Weekly.
Catalyst President and CEO Kevin J. Clarke paid tribute to Wenner Media
and Bulkley Dunton (the company that handles Wenner's paper supply)
while in Port Alberni to meet with employees, City officials, community
and business leaders.
"We have an excellent relationship and a shared commitment to being
great partners. The titles they publish on our paper have great name
recognition and having a long-standing anchor account helps grow
additional coated business because people can see our paper in print,
not only on a roll or in a sample pack," said Mr. Clarke.
With a total coated mechanical capacity of 223,000 tonnes, Catalyst
produces Electracote, a coated four and Pacificote, a coated five
product, on Port Alberni's No. 5 paper machine and the company's
product development team is now testing the capability to make an even
higher quality coated grade.
Catalyst Paper manufactures diverse specialty mechanical printing
papers, newsprint and pulp. Its customers include retailers, publishers
and commercial printers in North America, Latin America, the Pacific
Rim and Europe. With three mills, located in British Columbia, Catalyst
has a combined annual production capacity of 1.5 million tonnes. The
company is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the trading
symbol "CYT" and is headquartered in Richmond, British Columbia,
Canada. Catalyst is ranked by Corporate Knights magazine as one of the
50 Best Corporate Citizens in Canada.
