CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The sign in front of James River Corp. on Wayne Avenue will soon be removed and replaced with one bearing a different name.
But company officials say that's probably the biggest impact that Chambersburg's paperboard packaging plant will see, even though the well-known company merged Wednesday with Green Bay, Wisconsin-based Fort Howard to become Fort James Corp.
"Chambersburg is part of our packaging business. Fort Howard didn't have any packaging plants. So the packaging business that was part of James River will continue to operate just the way it had before as part of Fort James. So there will be very little impact," said Dick Elder, spokesperson for Fort James at its Richmond, Va., headquarters.
