This ensures all the fiber we process comes from responsible sources.
We are proud to have received regional, North American and global recognition for our leadership in corporate social responsibility and sustainable development, as well as for our business practices.
Resolute Tissue, a business of Resolute Forest Products, operates four paper machines and 12 converting lines in Calhoun (Tennessee), and in Hialeah and Sanford (Florida). We produce branded and private-label products for at-home and away-from-home channels, and offer recycled products, covering a wide range of grades.
In 2015, Resolute Forest Products announced its entry into the tissue market with the construction of a state-of-the-art tissue facility in Calhoun (Tennessee) to manufacture retail private-label tissue products, including bath and towel.
Resolute has made initial investments of over half a billion dollars into its tissue business, positioning the company as a key player in the market. Specifically, Resolute has invested $400 million in capital improvements at Calhoun, including the construction of a tissue machine and converting operation, as well as in a continuous pulp digester.
In late 2015, Resolute acquired Atlas Paper Holdings, a manufacturer of a broad range of recycled and virgin tissue products for the professional and private-label retail markets. With this transaction, Resolute gained an immediate position in the North American retail and professional tissue markets.
Today, Resolute Tissue has 4 paper machines and 12 converting lines located in Tennessee and Florida.
Resolute Tissue is a vertically integrated tissue producer with control of the production process—from material input to final product. We ensure precise control, cost competitiveness and consistent quality, while offering the flexibility and customization our customers demand.
