“The Atlas team has been working hand-in-hand with our local team to prepare for this day as we begin the next chapter of this Mill’s storied history. I am proud to continue to lead this team and work with Atlas to stand up the Mill as a thriving, self-sufficient pulp and paper operation and continue our legacy as a hallmark of the Thunder Bay community for many years to come,” said Kent Ramsay.
