Alpharetta, GA, Dec. 10, 2021 -- SWM International (NYSE: SWM) has finalized the sale of its former Spotswood, New Jersey facility to an undisclosed buyer, with net proceeds of approximately $35 million. Net proceeds from the transaction will be used to reduce Company debt. As previously disclosed, the Company closed its Spotswood, NJ facility at the end of 2020 as the Company transitioned to a newly developed manufacturing technology to better support the site’s key customer.
