Arkansas Business reports that Shandong Sun Paper intends to increase its investment and permanent employment in a planned pulp mill in Clark County and hopes to break ground this year.

The article says the company now plans to produce linerboard, a component in corrugated bard. This would mean an increased demand for pulpwood. It also said it would employ 350 rather than 250.  Construction was supposed to start last year, but the company now says it hopes to break ground this year.

The company is getting significant taxpayer handouts from county and state sources to encourage the plant location.
