Ancram Mill exec says smoking paper plant plans to remain open and busy
ANCRAM–Recent layoffs at the Ancram Paper Mill have provoked speculation about what the future holds for the historic mill that has been a fixture of the community and landscape along the Roeliff Jan Kill for 266 years.
Fears of closure are unfounded, says the mill manager, who condemns rumors about the mill’s impending demise and is working to revive business in new ways. The latest layoffs may only be temporary.
The current state and ultimate fate of the mill, owned by Schweitzer-Mauduit International, Inc., is not a topic of conversation limited only to company employees. The topic was openly discussed near the end of the Ancram Town Board’s August 20 meeting.
