Share this story

The Paper Excellence Group, through its wholly owned subsidiary Domtar Corporation has announced the successful closing of its previously announced acquisition of Resolute Forest Products Inc.
The acquisition creates a stronger and more resilient diversified forest products company, manufacturing a range of pulp products and specialty, printing, writing, and packaging papers, as well as lumber and tissue. The acquisition of Domtar in 2021 and Resolute today significantly increases the group’s scale, overall product offering and geographic reach.
“We are thrilled to welcome Resolute into the Paper Excellence Group. Resolute’s business is complementary to our own. It introduces new products to our offering and allows us to welcome an impressive workforce, strengthening our existing team. We are well positioned with the addition of competitive lumber capacity at a time of significant shortage in housing stock throughout North America,” said Patrick Loulou, vice chairman and chief strategy officer of the Paper Excellence Group.
“Resolute has shown that it shares our values and high standards related to the environment, our communities, and our people.”
“Together we are creating a stronger player in the global marketplace. We look forward to collaborating with our new colleagues, generating long-term value and driving sustainable economic activity in the communities where we operate,” said Remi G. Lalonde, Resolute’s president and CEO.
“The combined company will adopt best practices, sharing a common goal of sustainability leadership, and meaningful community engagement and partnerships, including with Indigenous communities.”
The Paper Excellence Group is a privately held diversified manufacturer of pulp and specialty, printing and writing, and packaging papers, producing over 7 million tons annually with a workforce of over 10,000 in its nearly 40 locations across the Americas and Europe.
