New lease on life for the Manistique paper mill

The Manistique paper mill, which has had a rocky off and on history of opening and closing, is slated for reopening under a new owner.
Last shut down in 2015, it was then owned by FutureMark Manistique.
The mill has been bought by a new company, UP Paper LLC, according to the Escanaba Daily Press. The company is made up of the Zellar family, which owns Zellar Excavating, and a group of other investors.
It'll be open as early as this week, and will employ about 90 people. Heading up the operation is president and CEO Lars Dannberg.
