Newark Paperboard moves So. Gardiner, ME operation
Feb. 7, 2007 - Newark Paperboard Products (NPP), a division of The Newark Group, recently relocated its South Gardiner, Maine operation to Monmouth, Maine. The move allows NPP to consolidate all operations under one roof while retaining the entire workforce from the South Gardiner location, some twenty miles east of the new location.
"The South Gardiner plant had become less efficient for us, requiring that we operate out of two separate buildings," said Rob Beaudoin, general manager of the NPP location. "The move to Monmouth is the culmination of a four-year search. This allows us to retain our valued employees, service our customers locally, and operate in an efficient environment."
The new location will continue to produce high-strength tubes and cores, as well as convert headers on state-of-the-art rotary and sheet fed die cutters, the company said.
"It would have been easy to consolidate the South Gardiner operation in one of our other nearby locations, but that wasn't the right thing for us or for our customers," said Phil Jones, senior vice president of NPP based in Cranford, NJ. "We intend to be here for quite a long time," he added
