CONCORD, NH, Jan. 6, 2014 (Local News) -Gorham Paper and Tissue mill announced yesterday that it is temporarily restructuring and cutting staff.

Sudden, extreme increases in New England's natural gas prices are forcing the temporary restructuring of its papermaking operations, the company said. The mill plans to operate only one or two paper machines on a regular basis for the rest of the winter, Chief Executive Officer Michael Cummings said.

The mill uses natural gas to generate steam used in the papermaking process.
