Through the first quarter of the year, the U.S. tissue market is showing rather mixed signals, as the fall of the Iconic Tissue Paper Mill and the Increase Tariff Cost on goods coming from China and the entrance of new players is changing the paper marketplace.

While some tissue producers reported higher volumes, slightly improved product pricing, or brighter prospects in the year last year 2018, most manufacturers blamed persistently competitive markets for the quarter's somewhat disappointing profits.

First-quarter demand was a bit of a mixed bag.

Iconic North American Tissue Paper Mill has fallen.

ELMWOOD PARK — The iconic Marcal sign that sat atop the Marcal Paper Mills building, visible from Route 80 since the 1940s, has fallen.

The entire structure was consumed by flames Wednesday night despite hours of toil in the bitter cold by firefighters to control the nine-alarm blaze that began in a nearby warehouse.

Marcal / Soundview offers a complete range of Away-From-Home paper products — including bath tissue, paper towels, napkins and facial tissue — to meet customers' needs across a variety of applications and commercial environments from healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, and food service to retail and office.

The question is if Atlas Holdings owner of Soundview/Marcal will re-stablish the factory in Elmwood Park or Move to Other Location? How could this affect The Paper Marketplace ?

Meanwhile, marcal is hard at work on plans to cont…
