BusinessWeek Quotes P. Scott Vallely on Paper Industry

As quoted in the October 9, 2009 BusinessWeek article called Kill a Newspaper, Save a Tree? Not Quite
The article reported on the challenges that the paper industry is experiencing – equipment shutdowns might save a tree or two – but its killing employment.
Many of AbitibiBowater's rivals "are losing money or breaking even," and have had to shutter operations temporarily, if not permanently, says P. Scott Vallely, CEO of Coy Paper, a specialty-paper distributor in New Canaan, Conn. "They're surviving by issuing more bonds and taking on more debt, which isn't sustainable."
