The Conversion Project
For more than 100 years, the Kingsport Mill has been a proud employer and community partner in the city of Kingsport and the surrounding area, not only as a large employer, but also a supporter of local vocational education, environmental sustainability and civic and recreational programs that enhance the daily lives for our neighbors.
That tradition will continue for many years to come thanks to the completed mill conversion from producing uncoated freesheet paper to Domtar’s first packaging facility.
