Abstract

Before Atlanta-based Georgia-Pacific could demolish its Old Town paper mill, the state struck a deal to buy the mill for $1 and resell it for the same amount to Red Shield Environmental, an investors group that wants to bring in small manufacturing firms and a renewable energy project. Red Shield CEO Ed Paslawski, in conjunction with Tamarack Energy of East Hartford, Conn., wants to generate electricity through the plant's biomass boiler. Mill workers are being rehired to work on the renovation, with union workers getting priority. Possible tenants include heat pump manufacturer, Hallowell International of Bangor, and Lamtec Inc. of Portland, a maker of pressure-sensitive labels. With a chronology of G-P's ownership of the mill from 2000-2006.
