GO Lab Inc. has closed on the sale of $85 million in bond funding and completed a New Markets Tax Credit transaction that will fund construction of a wood-fiber insulation factory at the former UPM paper mill in Madison. The company expects to employ 120 people at the plant when fully operational.

Mascoma Community Development (MCD) is pleased to announce the successful closing of $20 million in New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocation to support the redevelopment of a former paper mill into a wood fiber insulation manufacturing facility in Madison, Maine.
