Posted on 30th April 2013 at 16:00

Longview Fibre Paper and Packaging employees Mark Owens and Mike Mayton are now members of an exclusive fraternity, as the company announces that the pair has been inducted into the exclusive “Couch Pit University Fraternity.” Company officials say that this induction recognizes Owens’ and Mayton’s expertise and tenure within the papermaking industry. Owens is superintendent on Paper Machine 12, while Mayton is the superintendent on the Number 10 machine. Worldwide, only about 100 people are members of the “Couch Pit Fraternity,” with extensive knowledge and expertise in the papermaking process, and high regard from peers in the industry. The only other Longview Fibre employee with such a designation is Brad Bowman, who is the company’s paper team leader.
