Rayonier Advanced Materials
This photo was taken last summer at Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island.
It portrays the Rayonier Advanced Materials plant which was built in 1937. "The plant produces 160,000 metric tons of softwood cellulose specialties per year.
"These high purity wood pulps are used in manufacturing photographic film, cigarette filters, whipped topping, eyeglass frames, vitamins, rayon fabric, kidney dialysis filters, toothpaste, and ice cream."
The plant employs 320 people and adds $35 million to Florida's wages annually.
