NASHVILLE (AP) — A global paper products manufacturer is investing $270 million to expand its current operations in McMinn County and create more than 100 jobs.

Gov. Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd announced this week that Resolute Forest Products U.S. Inc. will undertake a major expansion at its pulp and paper mill in Calhoun.

Officials say the new state-of-the-art facility will manufacture about 60,000 metric tons per year of at-home, premium bath tissue and towel, focused on the growing private label market.

Construction will begin this month, with production expected to start in the first quarter of 2017.
