Cascades has inaugurated what it describes as its most modern containerboard packaging plant, a US$76-million investment in state-of-the-art equipment.

Located in Piscataway, N.J., the new plant is 450,000 square feet. With an annual production capacity of 2.4 billion square feet, the operation will allow Cascades to increase its internal integration of parent roll production.

“The inauguration of this significant investment highlights our commitment to both the modernization of our asset base, and the consolidation of our containerboard and packaging activities in the Northeastern U.S.,” says Mario Plourde, Cascades President and CEO. “It also represents a continuation of the important projects that we have carried out in recent years, including the Greenpac Mill in New York State and the Oregon tissue converting facility.”

In tandem with other Cascades plants, the new facility will supply lighter packaging to traditional and e-commerce markets, says Charles Malo, President and COO of Cascades Containerboard Packaging.
