Caraustar to Combine Two Tube Converting Plants in Saginaw, Michigan

Nov. 13, 2008 - Caraustar Industries said that it will consolidate its two tube converting operations in Saginaw, Michigan into one new facility located at 3265 Commerce Centre.

According to Caraustar, the two older facilities were turn-of-the-century, multi-storied buildings and were not designed for efficient manufacturing operations.

The new facility provides more streamlined operations while reducing work in process and materials handling costs, Caraustar said.

Paul Curtis, vice president and regional manager, stated, "This move is a significant commitment to our Saginaw operations, customers and employees. It positions the operation to continue to be the first choice provider of tubes to the automotive industry. This consolidation will improve productivity while reducing manufacturing costs; which are necessary in today's competitive environment."

Caraustar Industries is one of North America's largest integrated manufacturers of 100% recycled paperboard and converted paperboard products.
