APPLETON, Wis. (WLUK) — Some say the paper making business is a dying industry.
The Wisconsin Paper Council doesn’t believe that and spread the word at a luncheon with the Wisconsin Technology Council Thursday.
If you ask the Wisconsin Paper Council, there’s a real resurgence in the industry, and the papermaking business is alive and well.
Others believe it has never actually crumpled.
“I don’t think the paper industry ever really died, especially in the Fox Valley in Northeast Wisconsin,” said Jay Grosskopf, vice president of technical services at The Boldt Company.
Wisconsin’s papermaking industry leads the country.
Paper Council president Scott Suder says new technologies, innovations and products are the reasons why.
