The Verso paper mill in Sartell has been sold, but any details of the sale have not been released by Verso officials, who remain tight-lipped about the deal.
News of the sale was announced in the media Jan. 29, based on a brief and cryptic email that had been released by Verso. The terse email stated Verso will not issue a news release or make other public statements about the transaction other than statements required by law.
The purchaser of the plant is listed as AIM Development, LLC. At this point, it is not certain what AIM Development is or even where its parent company is located.
The City of Sartell has learned there was, in fact, a sale but knows no further details as of press time Wednesday.
