A year after shutdown, Luke paper mill remains idle

Industry News

LUKE — It was one year ago this week the final roll of paper rolled off the massive machines at the Luke paper mill, bringing to a close 131 years of production.

The mill’s owner, the Verso Corp., announced on April 30, 2019, that the historic mill — the flagship plant of the storied West Virginia Pulp and Paper Co. — would be shuttered. Verso intended to close the mill by May 31, but federal regulations required a 60-day notice.
