Part of former Inverurie paper mill site sold

Part of a former paper mill in Aberdeenshire which closed in 2009 has been sold.

More than 300 jobs went when International Paper's mill in Inverurie shut down.

International Paper said it had now agreed terms for the sale of a major part of its former site to Kirkwood Group.

Kirkwood chairman Ian Dunbar said: "We will be developing a masterplan and bringing forward exciting plans."

The value of the deal has not been disclosed.

International Paper had acquired the historic mill, which produced an estimated 85% of all photocopy and printer paper used in the UK every year, in 1996.
