LUKE, Md. (AP) — NewPage Corp. says it’s planning $15.8 million worth of improvements to its paper mill in Luke despite the company’s financial problems.

The Cumberland Times-News reports that Plant Manager Rick Watro announced the capital improvements during a meeting Thursday with the Allegany County Commissioners.

He says the mill has added 25 workers since NewPage filed for bankruptcy protection in September. That brings the mill’s employment to 870.

Watro says the Miamisburg, Ohio-based company is building its future in western Maryland.
