The story printed is fact but is very one sided. Yes Green Group is scraping the facility but what Missoula must wrap it's head around is that this faciltiy will never produce paper again so what do you do when you buy a paper mill and can't produce paper you salvage what you can and you concentrate on what you can do. As a former employee of both the paper mill and the demo crew I have first hand knowledge and experience in what that facility is capable of transforming into. The biggest asset that the site has is the natural resources that surround this area the other plants that Green Group has bought don't have this same asset they were only paper machines not complete facilities. Green Group did purchase this facility under the public understanding that jobs would be created but from first hand experiece it takes time to change a paper mill into anything else.
