The article discusses the success of Lee & Man Paper which bought a pulp mill in Samoa, California in January 2005. The former owner of the plant, Stockton Pacific Enterprises, nearly went bankrupt and has strained its ties to suppliers and creditors due to the steam flowing out of the plant's 250-foot stack. Lee & Man used a retrofit technology to solve this problem. J. Warren Hockaday, head of the area chamber of commerce, comments on the significance of Lee & Man's approach to Asian firms that are looking to fit in in the U.S.
