Sale of Kimberly-Clark’s former mill site in Everett, WA, falls through on cleanup issues

By Thu, May 08, 2014

EVERETT, WA, May 8, 2014 (Local News) -The toxic legacy of a paper mill scuttled a deal to turn 66 acres of dormant waterfront into a shipyard as both companies involved couldn't resolve who should pick up the cleanup bill.

Negotiations recently broke down between Kimberly-Clark and suitor Saltchuk Resources for Saltchuk to buy Kimberly-Clark's former mill site. The companies announced last week their purchase-and-sale agreement has terminated, but the two companies appear to still be talking cordially.

Saltchuk spokeswoman Emily Reiter said they would need an agreement on terms and conditions for Saltchuk to reopen negotiations.
