Domtar Corporation recently announced that it will expand its facility in Greenville, N.C., and locate its North American operations center in Pitt County.

The company is expected to create 35 new jobs and invest $100,000 over the next three years at the Attends facility in Greenville, N.C., which currently employs approximately 300 people. Attends has operated in Greenville since 1999. The city has served as Attends' headquarters since 2007. Domtar acquired Attends in 2011 to position the company for an increased share of the growing consumer products market.

Domtar, which operates pulp and paper, distribution and personal-care business segments, has invested approximately $20 million in eastern North Carolina over the past two years.

"As a wood fiber innovation company with a global sales footprint in pulp, paper and absorbent hygiene products, North Carolina is a big part of our growth story," said Domtar president and CEO John D. Williams. "With a fluff pulp mill and bio-chemical plant in Plymouth, a personal-care manufacturing facility in Greenville, as well as our global personal-care headquarters in Raleigh, this state is a symbol of Domtar's past and future working together for long-term prosperity."
