Cascades Invests $10 Million into Quebec Plant

May 31, 2010

The Specialty Products Group of Cascades yesterday broke ground on a new building, at its East Angus mill in Quebec, for a recycled-pulp unit for the production of kraft-type recycled pulp. Representing a $10-million investment, the building will house a pulping machine, loading platforms and a warehouse for waste paper.

According to the company, the unit will be able to convert daily more than 200 tonnes of old corrugated cardboard into recycled pulp, which allows Cascades to increase the recycled content of its kraft papers from 43 percent to 70 percent. The old corrugated cardboard to be converted will come from the company's sorting centres.

Cascades Specialty Products Group employs over 2,500 people across 44 business units located in North America and Europe. Considering all of its divisions, Cascades, led by Alain Lemaire, President and CEO, employs close to 12,500 people in more than 100 production units.
