I feel like there will always be a need for Paper

A story by Patricia Richards

Patricia Richards discusses her history of working in paper mills in Maine.

I am a third generation paper maker, and the Paper Industry is very important to the Jay, Livermore Falls, and Rumford area.

I have done a lot of different jobs since I started working at the Androscoggin Mill in 1978: accounting, Human Resources, communications, production, and as a quality technician in the labs.
