It will be one of the largest recycled-containerboard mills in North America, and the largest development project in the company’s history. The Green Bay Mill will be the first new paper mill in the State of Wisconsin in more than 30 years.
“Papermaking has long been a staple in Wisconsin’s economic success, but it’s no secret that many paper mills across the state have closed down or moved out in recent years. Like our Green Bay Mill, they grow old, become inefficient, and too expensive to reinvest, but we decided to move forward with building a new paper mill right here in Green Bay because we are committed to our hardworking employees, our loyal customers, and this community,” says Will Kress, President and CEO of Green Bay Packaging.
Green Bay Packaging’s new mill will have an estimated annual capacity of 685,000 tons, over double that of the current operation. The company expects the new mill to be operational in Q1 2021.
