The Atholville Mill., a Specialty Cellulose Pulp facillity, is located in Atholville, New Brunswick and is situated on the banks of the Restigouche River near the City of Campbellton. It was originally incorporated as AV Cell Inc. on January 7th, 1998 by the Aditya Birla Group and the mill reopened on February 20th with operations starting in May 1998. AV Group Inc, Atholville Mill draws its name from the initials of the late Mr. Aditya Vikram Birla, (AV) Father of the present chairman of the Adiyta Birla Group of India, Mr. Kumar Mangalam Birla, and Cellulose (Cell), the main product manufactured at the mill.

Like the sister mill in Atholville, the initials AV originate from the late Mr. Aditya Vikram Birla.
