Phoenix Paper Wickliffe Hiring Workers For 2019 Operation

Phoenix Paper Wickliffe LLC, via Facebook

A Wickliffe paper mill is accepting applications for maintenance and operator positions. Phoenix Paper Wickliffe, LLC is looking for workers with at least ten years experience in the paper industry and manufacturing.

Ballard County Judge/Executive Todd Cooper said groups of employees are targeted to begin work between mid-January and April. He said production will begin in early 2019.

The operation reopens the former Verso Corp. mill that closed two years ago. Governor Matt Bevin said in August that the mill’s reopening means 500 jobs for west Kentucky.

The company asks people to apply at the Kentucky Career Center in Paducah.
