EAST MILLINOCKET — The East Millinocket paper mill bought by a New Hampshire group last week will be producing paper again by Oct. 10.

Great Northern Paper’s new CEO says the mill needs to ship its first order by Oct. 30.

The plant will start with a staff of 215 workers.

Mill Manager Richard Cyr of Portsmouth, N.H.’s State Street Capital, says it’s a short window to fill the first order and it will put a lot of pressure on everyone.

The Bangor Daily News (http://bit.ly/oI9dCb) says mill managers will report to work Thursday and Friday.

Cyr says they’re depending on the “strength, conviction and ability of the region’s papermakers, their talent, to produce the paper.”

He says everyone will have to come together to succeed.
