NATCHEZ, Ms (February 5, 2013)- Governor Phil Bryant visited Natchez today to formally welcome the von Drehle Corporation. The company announced in January, the purchase of the former Mississippi River Pulp plant.  Von Drehle, which provides paper products to commercial and industrial consumers nationwide, will create at least 100 new jobs, make investments in additional converting equipment and subsequently install a paper machine.

“We are proud to have von Drehle,” said Governor Bryant.” We want to create an environment where every Mississippian who wants a job has a job with the work force development we have. It is exciting to know the company whose motto is ‘integrity is our company’s most important asset’ (is moving to this community).”

The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) assisted von Drehle with this project providing guidance on available tax incentives. In addition, Adams County is providing support via Fee in Lieu tax abatements for this project. 

“This is a great facility and we look for a long life here,” said Steve von Drehle, “We are impressed with the community, the people we have spoken with have been superb. They (von Drehle) have grown from 5 employees to 340, we hope here we will make it 440, plus.”

Established in 1974, von Drehle maintains manufacturing operations in North Carolina, Nevada and Tennessee. Through an international network of more than 400 distributor partners, the Hickory, N.C. based company sells towel, tissue and dispenser products to industrial, commercial and institutional distributors, contract cleaners and building-maintenance service providers. The von Drehle products are made of 100% recyclable and supply companies such as Wal-Mart, McDonalds, MSC and many more.
