Harbor Paper management out, operations curtailed

Harbor Paper in Hoquiam announced Monday that the mill that reopened with fanfare in September after a 15-month shutdown will temporarily “curtail operations” during a transition period that involves a “wholesale management change.”

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the mill would cease operation completely during the transition, or how long it would last. Company officials wouldn’t comment beyond a one paragraph announcement from Elliott Rust Holdings LLC. Harbor Paper LLC, which owns the mill, is owned by Elliott Rust Holdings LLC, which is owned by Cesar Scolari of Gig Harbor.
