Relighting the sign also was a way to celebrate Soundview's efforts to rebuild the Marcal name, the brand of the company's toilet tissue, paper towels and facial products, said Soundview President and Chief Executive Officer George Wurtz.
Since purchasing financially struggling Marcal for an undisclosed sum, Soundview, part of Atlas Holdings LLC, has been stabilizing the company and positioning it for growth, Wurtz said. It has also boosted productivity by 20 percent and sales increased 19 percent, Wurtz said.

While making no promises, Soundview President and Chief Executive Officer George Wurtz III said business is good in Vermont so far.
"We've been very pleased with the initial investment," Wurtz said. "We're in conversations with the governor to look at potentially continuing to grow our converting capacity and hire more employees within the region." Soundview formed with the acquisition nearly a year ago of Elmwood Park, N.J.-based Marcal Paper Mills LLC. Marcal-known for its 100 percent-recycled paper products such as tissues and napkins-which had entered and emerged from bankruptcy and was about to be liquidated, Wurtz said. "We went in and looked at the (Marcal) mill, and we decided to buy the mill," Wurtz said. It so happened that Putney Paper was a Marcal supplier, so Soundview executives visited Vermont. Wurtz recalls a September conversation that went this way: "If you're ever interested in selling, Putney Paper would be a perfect fit with our Soundview Paper business and the Marcal Mill." "Safety has improved dramatically," Wurtz said. "It's a much safer workplace. It's a cleaner workplace." The acquisition was a strategic move for Soundview: The company, through its continuation of the Marcal brand, already was a player in the "in-home" segment of the paper-product market. But Wurtz said "away-from-home" products-for example, paper used in restaurants or hotels-account for about 34 percent of the business. And that's where Putney comes in, as the mill produces folded towels and napkins for the away-from-home market. "It gave me access to 34 percent of the market," Wurtz said. "Before that, we were only doing business in one segment of the market." It helps that the Putney mill produces a 100-percent recycled product. "Sustainability is important," Wurtz said. "Most of the away-from-home market prefers recycled." The mill employs 105-95 hourly employees and 10 salaried. But administrators say they can add more equipment and staff without needing to add square footage. While there is business demand for such a move, Wurtz said the state's eventual decision on whether to assist the company is important. "We're doing very well. We've invested money. We're looking to invest more money in the facility," Wurtz said.
