Newfoundland. Construction of the mill began in 1923 with the first
paper produced in 1925. It was then incorporated in 1927 as the
International Paper Company of Newfoundland Limited and was acquired by
Bowater Corporation in 1938. The company became part of the Kruger
organization in December of 1984, at which time it adopted its present
