“Tennessee’s business-friendly environment and high quality workforce have attracted some of the world’s most recognizable brands to our state,” TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe said. “We’re thankful that Orchids Paper, like countless other companies over the years, has decided to call Tennessee home. We look forward to establishing a strong and lasting partnership with Orchids Paper as it establishes its headquarters in Davidson County and creates high quality job opportunities.”
