SARTELL, Minn. (AP) The Verso paper mill in Sartell which was recently purchased by a Montreal-based scrap metal and recycling company is not going to be reopened.
American Iron & Metal Company president and CEO Herbert Black plans to re-use the Verso paper mill's buildings in an as-yet undetermined development.
Black says there is no market to operate a paper mill and that he hopes to get a better idea of how the site could be developed during a visit planned for February.
Verso was cited with serious violations after a man was killed in a blast at the plant on Memorial Day. OSHA fined the company $40,000.
