NORTHUMBERLAND, N.H. (AP) — Ten years after a paper mill shut down in the village of Groveton, New Hampshire, a Vermont manufacturer has taken root and has 92 people at work.
Last year, NSA Industries of St. Johnsbury, a metal fabrication company, signed a long-term lease to rent 73,000 square feet (6781 sq. meters) of space on the site of the former Wausau Paper Mill in Groveton.
NSA Industries bought $3 million in equipment, and plans to double that. It also plans to hire about a dozen more people.
The owner of the property, Bob Chapman, wants to create a commercial/industrial complex that will draw business to the North Country.
