Green Bay Packaging Announces Plans for the Construction of a New Containerboard Machine


Dec. 1, 2017 - Green Bay Packaging (GBP) announced that it is in the first phase of evaluating construction of a new, recycled containerboard machine at its containerboard mill in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

According to the company, the new machine would have a trim width of 220 inches and replace an existing machine with a trim width of 164 inches that was built in 1950.

GBP anticipates the new machine to be operational in 2020. The investment would increase GBP's recycled containerboard capacity by over 70%.

GBP's Green Bay mill uses 100% post-consumer recycled material and produces 100% recycled containerboard in a full range of basis weights, including high performance grades.

Green Bay Packaging is a family-owned, vertically integrated company consisting of corrugated container plants, folding cartons, recycled and virgin linerboard mills, pressure-sensitive label roll stock, specialty converting operations, timberlands, and a sawmill facility.
