Packaging Corp. of America to Upgrade Two Paper Machines at Wallula Mill

April 8, 2014 (Tri-City Herald) - Boise Paper's new owner is investing in upgrades to two of the Wallula (Washington) paper mill's three paper machines.

The machines —- called Desert Lily and Princess Sacagawea —- make release paper for labels and the brown paper that becomes the corrugated part of cardboard boxes.

The investment by Packaging Corporation of America, which bought Boise Paper in October, will improve the quality and range of the paper those machines can produce, said Sean Krajnik, mill manager. It sets the paper mill up to be sustainable during the next decade.

"This will be a pinnacle year for Wallula," he said.
