The history of the Foley Mill

Foley Cellulose Mill Homepage

The Foley Cellulose mill, near Perry, Florida, is a major producer of specialty fibers from predominantly slash pine. Constructed by Procter & Gamble in 1954, the facility was acquired by a private business partnership in 1993 when P&G sold its Cellulose and Specialties Division. The partnership evolved into a publicly traded company, Buckeye Technologies, Inc., in November 1995, before finally being acquired by Georgia-Pacific in the summer of 2013.
