Clearwater picks North Carolina site

Clearwater Paper Corp. will build a new tissue paper plant in Shelby, N.C., Gov. Bev Perdue announced today.

Spokane-based Clearwater will invest at least $260 million in the plant and equipment, which will produce 10 million cases of tissue. Company facilities now produce 30 million cases, spokesman Matt Van Vleet said.

The 650,000-square-foot Shelby plant will employ 250, he said.

North Carolina and local jurisdictions will contribute $50 million in incentives to the project over the next 12 years.
